A Note From Us

Share This Story

Over the past week we’ve been doing some listening, learning, and soul searching to figure out the best way to talk about, well, the state of the world. On top of the uncertainty, fear and sadness we’ve all experienced through this global pandemic, we’re now being reminded about the inequality that still transcends daily life.

Before we get too far in – there are people out there who don’t think Collective Arts should get ‘political’ in business. But this is beyond politics. There is an undeniable global call to action that’s needed in order to address anti-black violence and inequality faced by BIPOC, not only in America right now, but around the world and in our own backyard. We know that in order to help drive change, we will need to take a stance on injustice, inequality, and oppression and we will use our platform to do so.

Collective Arts has just announced our charitable umbrella, More. This is where Collective Arts will commit to financially giving back to initiatives that support community and inspire creativity. In light of recent news, we have diverted our More. launch campaign to funnel all profits from these items to go to Black Lives Matter.

We all need to take ownership in making the world a better place to live for everyone. We need to get uncomfortable, challenge ourselves on how we, personally, are going to start thinking differently about racism in our lives. We need to hold our governments accountable. We need to hold ourselves accountable. We need to take action. We need to make some noise.

Later this week you’ll see us announce our Pride series. We’re celebrating LGBTQ2+ talents and perspectives by featuring 4 artists from the global Queer community, carefully curated by Wee Moody Judy and Sarah Maxwell. In anticipation of this series, we would like to acknowledge Pride’s riotous roots, and thank the black and trans folks who started the movement. Proceeds from the sales of the Pride cans will be donated to the Rainbow Railroad, an organization which helps LGBTQI people facing possible persecution around the world find a path to safety.

Additionally, we are seeking out ways to elevate and center the work and voices of BIPOC artists on our cans. We know that the fight against racism and injustice goes beyond words and social media posts but we are committed to being a mover and shaker; there is no place for racism at Collective Arts. We urge you to read, pay attention and support how you can. This is a good resource to start: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/
