Art & Advocacy was founded in late 2017 by artist and designer Brittany Bouyer. The idea was to create more purpose behind art, bring more awareness to causes from all over the world and promote advocacy. We aim to give back to communities that are constantly thriving to make a difference.
Here's how it works.
Every three months, Brittany creates a new collection of designs that correlate with a non-profit partnership and their current projects. After the launch of the art and designs, each partnered non-profit receives 20% of the proceeds from every single sale in that collection, forever.
For 2017 our Yoga Collection, our partners were Rise Up Wellness, based right here in Chicago promoting yoga wellness classes in underserved areas.
