Mission Statement

Elevating the visibility of LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) people and advocating for an improved quality of life through the arts, strategic partnerships, and community programs in the Deep South and Midwestern United States.

Description

TAKING REVOLUTIONARY ART OFF THE WALLS AND ONTO OUR BODIES

The Change Project recognizes that each person's experiences are uniquely theirs and believes that all people should be able to share theirs story. The Change Project brings greater visibility to the experiences of all LGBTQ people and raise awareness of the privileges individuals may carry within all aspects of their identities. We also highlight the intersectionality inherent in human identity and demonstrate how understanding this intersectionality is important to achieving social equality. Our vision is for a society that accepts all people regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

The Change Project serves everyone by creating access to fine art for low-income people, ensuring that all identity groups are represented in the artwork, and supporting LGBTQ people by affirming their identities in mainstream society. By creating dialogue around LGBTQ identities, The Change Project fosters acceptance of these identity groups. By supporting LGBTQ people through highly-visible campaigns, we counteract stigma and prejudice against LGBTQ people. By sharing the stories of individuals of diverse backgrounds, we seek to destabilize the societal obstacles for LGBTQ people of multiple, concomitant identities. Finally, by creating educational resources that are driven by lived experiences, we can create a world where LGBTQ people feel safe and secure.
