You + MIXED = <3

MIXED is a multidisciplinary art conference that provides a space to share our experiences around racialized mixed-race identities through art, discussion and community building. Our goal is to bring together 150 participants and attendees, free of charge, to showcase talented artists, social justice activists and community leaders.

But we can’t do it without your help. MIXED is a 100% volunteer run community group and we need the support of folks like you! Your contribution will be used to rent the venue, ensure accessibility, and provide stipends for the artists and facilitators. Every dollar counts and no contribution is too small.

There are so many stories to be told. Your donation with help them be heard.
