Venue Description
Levee Collective is a place to develop your practice of making art and healing. More than what is hung on a wall or placed on a bookcase; art is intentional creative expression. It is a revolution. It is to be endured, pondered, and experienced. We are all not only artists, but it is all art. Movement is art. Cooking is art. Media is art. War is art. Grief is art. Motherhood is art. Whatever is done with great intention and care is art, and creativity is required of us all to sustain. Founded in the Spring of 2024 by Tosha Sun and Monet, Levee is an actionable step towards awareness. It is women BIPOC artists supporting and uplifting other women BIPOC artists. Inspiring creation, collaboration, care, and access to community.
