how YOU can support the Be Seen Project


Thank you to everyone who's been showing up with your reaching out to find out ways to help support the Be Seen Project! Even though we are still in the scrappy, grassroots beginning, I have a clear vision for how I hope to advance this work.

How You Can Support
  • Create and Make for our Creative Calls to Action. All of our featured initiatives are also craftivist projects in action! Use your creative superpowers to knit, sew, paint, scribble and quite literally *make* a difference.

  • Volunteer as part of our Street Team. Help amplify our work and connect artists and activists in your corner of the world! Host a conversation with me about the project. Create a fundraiser. Offer your time, your skills, your goods, your platform. There are a million creative ways you can put your talents to work - let's collaborate!

  • DONATE and help expand our reach, fund our micro grants, pay artists, and support community mutual aid. All donations over $25 are subscribed to our quarterly print zine as our thanks to YOU!

  • Subscribe to and share pour Podcast, where we have in-depth conversations with artists and makers not only about creativity, but also about intersectional identity and all the isms of oppression and marginalization. 

  • Become an official Sponsor or part of our Cohort, which helps us directly fund our project, initiatives, micro grants, and our zine and podcast.

Sometimes it's easier to roll up our sleeves and dive into the work rather than to try to figure out the "right" things to do or say. We all have the ability to start exactly where we are with what we have - I know this because it is exactly where I am on my journey too. I am learning and listening and fighting right alongside you.

Join me. Help lift artists and makers doing brave work that is changing our world. We can not do it alone. ♥

Last year I made a revolutionary Art + Activism Calendar. This year I made you an entire full-size planner, my gift of love and care to you! The Radicle Ritual Planner is truly unique and one-of-a-kind. It is not about centering goals, productivity, success, or even *you* as a lone individual. It was envisioned to meet this new moment (and the next!), founded in interconnection so that each of us can find our constellation of care to better organize and support everything in our lives! Because we were not meant to Be and Do it all alone. The Self Care Industrial Complex has sold us

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,
