What does it mean to be an Artivist?

Artivists champion the communal, universal, healing language of ART.

I’m an Artivist because all it takes is one person to connect many.
– Kim Ozlo

Artivism emboldens the distinct, rare creativity deep within each individual.

I’m an Artivist because others’ creativity inspires my own creativity. I become an artist through that inspiration, the opportunity to work in community, and the permission to s-t-r-e-t-c-h into courage and exploration. – Jan Leversee

The Artivist Process is the method of discovering, cultivating and supporting everyone’s inner artist in a collaborative environment.

I’m an Artivist because it helps me understand and interact with the world around me. (and it helped my mom!) – Taage Dressel-Martin

Art awakens our empathy.

I am an Artivist because it breaks down damaging comparisons and builds up heartening connections. – Sarah Leversee

Humans heal and are healed in the service of art and creativity.

I’m an Artivist because playing is as important to life as breathing. – Karen Horan

Art helps us understand that which is bigger than ourselves

I’m an Artivist because it is an opportunity to be courageous.
– Leann Roberts
