The Healing Walls Project (HWP) is an art organization that directly connects to BIPOC communities to create public art while bringing resources, guidance, and healing to BIPOC Artists. The Healing Walls Project is lead by a radical collaboration of BIPOC queer femme artists.
HWP is more than an art program it’s a movement! HWP strives to shift the narratives forced upon BIPOC artist to a more peaceful and empowering creative journey. HWP provides workshops to artists and guide them through the process of creating public art, resulting in rotating murals; art that will change and cycle throughout the course of the year. HWP will also come together with BIPOC communities to heal together through collective experience.
Art is powerful; it transcends through era and culture, and provokes thought. But what kind of history is being preserved when BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & People of Color) do not have the opportunity to speak? Our history is incomplete when it is told from only one perspective, and healing is incomplete when those most affected by trauma do not have a platform to express their experience.
The Healing Walls Project (HWP) aims to close the gaps in history by preserving and uplifting the BIPOC narrative through public art while cultivating organic spaces for BIPOC artists. Public art is a form of essential knowledge and its impact is greatest when the art created holds a direct reflection of the community it serves. HWP travels across the United States connecting BIPOC artists and local organizations to create a more equitable and inclusive art community.
We are always looking for BIPOC Artists and Creatives interested in creating public art, as well as professional artist and mentors from all walks of life. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on admissions and apps.
