In collaboration with Compound’s Art for All program, Josué Thomas led a collection of kids in a collaborative design project. This process culminated in a line of limited edition t-shirts like this one. 50% of proceeds from the sales of these tees will be donated to charitable organizations including Art of Elysium as well as Stop Being Racist with Compound LB in the creation of grants to youth in our community to inspire the creativity in the next generation.
Stop Being Racist! is a social justice campaign, a call to action, a sign of resistance against overt and covert racism, a place to share personal experiences, and a creative space to express an oppositional perspective to systemic racism. SBR intends to impact lives and offers an alternative vision to support youth through strained racial tension and oppression.
In collaboration with Compound - a cultural sanctuary dedicated to the intersection of art, wellness, education and community engagement in Long Beach - SBR will create grants for youth who express interest in creation, innovation and community.
The Art of Elysium was founded to support artists working for the benefit of others.
Art of Elysium pairs volunteer artists with communities in Los Angeles to support individuals in the midst of difficult emotional life challenges like illness, hospitalization, displacement, confinement, and/or crisis. We serve medically fragile children, teens, adults, seniors, those dealing with social, emotional and mental health issues, and the homeless
