Mission Statement

Unique Union, Inc. is a local gathering place at the intersection of urban culture, applied art, mental wellness and creative community in Ward 7 Southeast Washington, DC. Our mission is to provide meaningful, therapeutic arts programming for creatives of all ages, to educate the local community in fine arts, urban culture and mental wellness, to provide certified group art therapy to adults and youth suffering from mental illness, and to build strength in the local community.


The Unique Union, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization formed to provide a place where creatives of all abilities are encouraged to develop their full expressive potential through art. We offer a dynamic, unique, and constantly evolving program with our #SelfCareSunday Craft Workshops. Although we try to incorporate all of the fine arts into our programs, our focus is on visual and applied art. We have transformed our program to accommodate social distancing with our #SelfcareSunday Virtual Craft Workshops and Virtual Adult Mental Health First Aid Certification through the National Council of Behavioral Health (in blended format).

We plan to have the option to participate in certified group art therapy workshops. All activities are guided and enjoyed on an RSVP or walk-in basis. We are staffed by working creatives, and all structured activities will be led by master artist-teachers &/or certified art therapists. Unique Union, Inc. offers an art experience to the community that will increase awareness of the arts, create an audience for the arts, promote mental wellness for all and cannot be duplicated.
