I need your help!
In order to spread awareness, I need voices and personal experiences. Your stories, words, and shared creativity can help change stigma on being an artist/geek/gamer, and encourage others to incorporate creativity into their lives. I truly believe creativity is for everyone, and having beautiful words, stories, and work can encourage us all to pursue a creative life.
If you'd like to participate, please reply via YouTube video or e-mail me your response. I can link your video on my YouTube channel. We can create a more positive creative community, as well as reduce stigma at the same time. Thank you in advance! :)
