By putting the power of art and design in the hands of the average citizen we are harnessing the power to initiate thought, promote change, renounce hate and reinforce an environment of inclusion. The creative process and community gathering give an alternative reaction to the fear, sadness and anger that is felt when racism, bigotry, prejudice and the threat of violence appear.
3 WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
We would love to help you host your own art making workshop to Replace-the-Hate in your community, school, church or campus. In addition to guidance and support, we offer hands on workshops for any group young or old, regardless of artistic ability. All you need is a strong desire to reinforce community ties and replace hate with messages of kindness. Please contact us for any additional information on how to get started with a workshop.
As inspiring work is created and donated, we curate and display in our traveling gallery show. This show is ever evolving and holds dozens of powerful messages that renounce hate and rejoice in diversity. The work is stunning in its simplicity and carries individual messages from the artists that echo the sentiments of peace, love, hope, and tolerance.
There are just over 50 curated pieces created by designers, middle school students and community members young and old. All pieces are framed and gallery wired. The work is large and small, pictorial and typographic, beautiful and raw. The pieces range in size from 4 x 6 in to 16 x 20 in, with most being 8 x 10 in. The overall number of pieces can be reduced to accommodate any space available. If you are interested in displaying our traveling gallery show, please contact me directly via the contact us tab.
Professor Vicki L. Meloney and Professor Doris Palmeros have traveled far and wide to share their unexpected story of spontaneous activism that let to a grass roots movement fueled by the collective need for communities to come together to renounce the hate that is encroaching into their lives.
Their lectures are audience appropriate as they have shared their story with small children and academics. If you are interested in having Professor Meloney and/or Professor Palmeros speak to your group please feel free to contact them.
