USER GENERATED CONTENT AND SOCIAL MEDIA OUTREACH
Curated Online Galleries
One of our core objectives is to discover and share the work of recovering artists though our Instagram Account. By creating the Hashtag #MAKEDONTUSE we are able to make connections with artisits across the globe and share stories and original artwork. We use this platform to curate an online gallery featuring the work of artists in recovery from all kinds.
Our hope in this initiative is two-fold:
Build Community and Reduce the Stigma.
It is our goal to build relationships and promote the artwork of individuals in recovery. Our hope is that seeing art represented by Artists self-identifying as being in recovery will inspire others and show that they are not alone. We hope that this will become a catalyst for those in the grips of addiction to seek help. We wish to break the stigma around addiction and instill the belief that Recovery is Possible.
SUBMIT YOUR WORK
Become a Featured Artist
If you would like to become a featured Artist, we would love to know more about you. We are interested in featuring the work by artists whom identify as being in recovery or having a relationship to recovery. We are interested in Art from all mediums. We ask that artists share a little bit about their story, however Art does not need to be about recovery.
We ask for three high-quality images of work to be submitted
POP-UP ART SHOWS
Building Relationships in the Real World
Community Outreach is essential to our growth and visibility in the Greater Los Angeles Area and beyond. Through organizing Pop-Up events, and networking with establish institutions, we hope to gain some visibility in both the LA Art and Treatment Worlds. It is our intention to build a foundation based on solid relationships with established Art Centers and Institutions as well as Treatment Centers and Providers so we can best serve our artists.
