We believe in a world with less harm ... and more community care... and we're making space for this world, however we can.
Here, at the intersection of Creativity and Mental Health, you will find the following offerings, curated with Black folks at the center: a podcast, regularly updated resource list, and care-fully curated online gathering spaces.
We are Natasha Thomas (left) and Adenike Webb (right), two community workers, educators, and board-certified music therapists deeply committed to supporting Black Communities at the intersection of Creativity and Mental Health. We are your conversational doulas, co-conspirators, and fellow travelers on this journey!
We seek to be a balm to the gaping wound of systemic oppression on ALL of humanity. We center our efforts on Black folks because we believe that our intimate familiarity with how oppressive systems function gives us a unique expertise that *could* alleviate our current generational trauma, *if* we are provided with the kinds of spaces and supports necessary to expand our healing capacity.
We offer spaces where Black folks can center their needs in community with other Black folks, and spaces where racially mixed groups (Black and non-Black folks together!) can practice centering Blackness in community as well. This happens a variety of ways:
features radical conversations & collaborations with other Black Creatives. These catalyze individual listeners with prompts for their own personal work.
supports the thought processes initiated by the podcast by pointing folks towards other media and spaces where they can learn more about the topics of our conversations and collaborate on their own Black-centered creative projects.
including a FREE Black-only space on Discord, and a racially open space in Patreon, with paid tiers, participants will find more in depth exercises here, along with other opportunities like Community Social Hours and Creative "Co-Works."
