  • Celebrate the work of artists experiencing mental illness and artists that utilize art as a force for healing.
  • Provide an accessible and empowering resource for artists to enter the art community.
  • Raise awareness and educate about mental health through art.
  • Provide events that challenge stigmatizing views of special populations by focusing on creativity, strengths, and hope rather than disability.
