Vends + Vibes
An Arts Marketplace

Naimah_Creates

“Greetings, I'm an artist and art therapist living in Washington Park. My passion is to create more opportunities for people of color, specifically Black to have access to art and therapy. I create work that reflects my experience as a Black Woman and as a Therapist, which aims to be accessible. Accessibility is a key element to decolonizing art and therapy, providing work that seeks to shift the dominant narratives. As an emerging artist it is important for me to use opportunities such as Vends and Vibes to work on my craft and make connections in my community. In addition to working full time as an art therapist with children and families impacted by abuse, I am also a member of For The Peoples Artist Collective.”
