Today's Highlight: The Nscad Queer Collective is an autonomous group of artists, activists, and community members that have been working together since fall 2019. The queer collective is not only a safe space for LGBTQ+ and BIPOC people, they also work incredibly hard to create an environment for change.
I would like to highlight the recent fundraiser run by the Nscad Queer Collective which raised $ 2,220 in support of and in solidarity with BIPOC community members. Funds were raised through the sale of art bags which included a variety of Nscad community work such as prints, zines, patches, posters, stickers, scarves, etc. The funds were then distributed to those in need of financial aid.
As an artist and Nscad community member it is inspiring to see the change that can be created through the arts. The people at The Nscad Queer Collective spark hope in me, as we live in a society that strays farther from community it is becoming harder to find spaces which you feel heard, comfortable, understood, and that you belong.
