Social & Cultural Creative Impact

Mission & Creative Call to Action

The Be Seen Project is a platform and community for BIPOC artists and makers who are using their work to center marginalized voices and create social justice dialogue and change. .  .  .  The creative process is inherently revolutionary.  It reflects culture, invites engagement, archives history, builds relationship, and shares visions and narratives that can confront social systems in a powerful way when used as a tool for change.  Black, Indigenous and People of Color have largely been left out of the historical cultural narrative and modern craftivist movement. Art created through our lived experiences of oppression and marginalization  is not simply an expression of protest, it offers critical  perspective and insight missing from the broader discourse of these movements. Our project goal is to center these voices and support artists and makers who are confronting systems of oppression through their life, art and craft by: Increasing BIPOC visibility and our diverse world view  D
