A HUGE thank you goes out to all of the wonderful volunteers who risked their own safety and volunteered to help others who were in need, You guys are HEROS.

Amplified Voices Project Launches

Amplified Voices is a community collaborative public mural project spearheaded by artist Jade Warrick to amplify the voices of local artists of color and provide youth mentoring opportunities.

Amplified Voices Mission: To give the youth of color who are striving artists (or have creative interest) the opportunity to be able to express themselves in a world that tends to cut out their voices due to their age. We will strive to provide a safe space for young artists to be able to socialize with like-minded creatives, work on and grow their artistic abilities, and reflect on how they can use art as a healing/meditative device. Our mission comes down to giving local youth a platform to amplify their voices during a pandemic AND a civil rights movement in creative ways. And our goal is to make sure youth of color know their existence is validated and their communities and lives matter.
