2nd Annual Healing Gala & Art Auction
The Healing Academy is a Chicago based nonprofit organization that brings awareness to the literacy deficits that plague our world, the power of emotional maturity, the importance of African/ African American history and the necessity to cultivate one’s artistic self. We hold classes and workshops for all ages to ensure the education, growth, heath and the overall betterment of Melanated people not only in Chicago but the world. One goal of the Healing Academy is to open a community arts center that is a holistic academic institution teaching literacy in order to serve communities of color while healing the voids and traumas of oppression. Another goal is to open a School for the arts, literacy, holistic health, life skills, history and so much more!
What is this exhibition?

Funds raised will pay teaching artists, buy supplies and help cover day to day operations. Artists can choose to fully donate artwork OR you can donate half and receive half back. Either way all donations are tax deductible because we have 501c3 status.
