The Committee will be action-based with its primary focus on community building, promoting agency, sustainability, equity, and justice.


  • Develop spaces for the community at-large to share their voice using creative processes
  • Respond in the moment to social justice crises/concerns by providing first aid arts solutions to those directly affected
  • Partner with local community organizations to facilitate and leverage opportunities to support mission
  • Raise awareness of the healing role art provides in decreasing mental health stigma among underrepresented groups (through training, mentoring, or other means)
