SUPPORT SOULS GROWN DEEP
Donate today and be a catalyst for change.
As we approach the end of another transformative year, we find ourselves reflecting on the strides made and the challenges that persist in the art world. Souls Grown Deep has been at the forefront of advocating for equity and justice in the arts, and we are reaching out to you to join us in fueling this crucial mission.
In 2023, the art world stands at a crossroads, grappling with deep-seated inequities that have persisted for far too long. While strides have been made towards inclusivity, there is much work to be done to ensure that artists of all backgrounds are given the recognition and opportunities they deserve. Souls Grown Deep has been unwavering in its commitment to advancing social justice within the art world, focusing on supporting artists from communities that have historically been marginalized. Our exhibition at London’s Royal Academy of Art this year brought the talent of many of the 160 artists for whom we advocate into sharp focus abroad. We have seen to the growth of personal income by the families of artists at work today, and we helped stage the 2nd annual Airing of the Quilts Festival in Gee’s Bend, Alabama, attracting visitors and yielding economic benefits to the community.
