What we're about
This MeetUp is an extension of the non-profit 501c3 organization.
Self Love Affirmation Preservation
Striving to impart and reinforce positive mindsets and communities, the SLAPcollective is a melding of groups, individuals, and initiatives that promote self love, affirmation, and preservation through artistic exploration and expressions. From workshops and group discussions to shared work spaces and artistic productions - spanning various mediums and practices - the Collective connects creatives and others with resources and unifying spaces. We build community through artistry and bring some color to self worth!
Our collective mission is to promote self exploration and expressions through creative arts. We curate safe spaces and host creative gatherings that strengthen one's sense of self and belonging by connecting individuals with resources and experiences that leave them feeling expressive and fluid - building community through artistry. Our intent is to nurture a community of beings and spaces for the purpose of individual and collaborative growth and illumination by showcasing various developing artists, voices, mediums and practices.
Within our unifying spaces and programming, we connect and mix Creatives with one another and audiences to display and further develop their artistic crafts; we aim to grow and cultivate a succinct community of artists and various resources that help grow and cultivate artists of all degrees. Ultimately, Creatives are empowered with a platform to explore and collaborate with others by hosting and/or participating in workshops, open discussions and showcases. On the other hand, the everyday individual, as an attendee and active participant, is encouraged to take part in and explore their own means of creative expression.
