Mission Statement

Combining Art & Catharsis and being CathARTic! We provide an exciting ground-breaking arts collective and we encourage people to express themselves through art. We believe the arts are a great elixir and creativity is our currency. Our ethos is based on 'pay it forward' exchanging the arts for positive and encouraging feedback from our team of art-crazy volunteers and encouraging our members also to create a ripple effect.

Description

We provide a platform both online (primarily) and offline for those who struggle with mental health, addiction, gender dysphoria, sexuality or who feel like they don't quite 'fit', or feel estranged to this world : to express themselves through art as catharsis.

Would you recommend The Fledgling Arts Collective Central?

by Jenny P. from Carrollton, GA (August 18, 2016)
After a couple of weeks of volunteering here, I had seen several instances where I felt the founder was insensitive in questioning some authors about whether they'd really been abused and considered suicide. I felt like everything I said was constantly misconstrued by the founder and responded to with a condescending tone. When I quit, she emailed me to tell me that she'd been receiving complaints about me and even had 2 senior volunteers suggest she let me go. I informed her that I had received nothing but praise from my fellow volunteers and had not been given any criticism prior to quitting. I then asked that she not contact me again. She did so one more time, to inform me that she wasn't lying. I felt completely belittled, hurt, and abused. I'd worked daily, even though Id only committed to two days a week, and had received all wonderful feedback and praise from my fellow volunteers. I felt that I could at least walk away with that knowledge, but she took that from me.
