BIPOC Community

Share The Salt: A Digital Haven for Creative Exploration, for and by People of Color

Project Description

Share The Salt is a digital haven for BIPOC folks to build community & explore our creative potential. Every Monday morning from 6AM to 8AM EST, we host an invite-only online gathering for Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian creatives—a free-flowing space for you to share your passion projects, create in silence, or simply celebrate the dawn of a new week. No expectations, no judgment. Show up when it feels right, tend to yourself and your creative project—and leave when you need to. Our weekly gatherings are free, and open with a short mantra or meditation. Request your invite at sharethesalt.com.

My Creative Aha! moment

The one important aha! moment I've had in my creative process of this project is:

Over the years, I’ve made countless excuses to avoid realizing my most courageous passion projects. And in a world where BIPOC communities, stories, and cultures are often tokenized or appropriated for others’ benefit and enjoyment, I learned like so many others to survive, not thrive, and build up walls to protect myself from further trauma or harm. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, however, I came to a sudden and cathartic moment of realization: I can no longer afford to shrink myself to fit roles that were never meant for me—and I cannot leave this world with my gifts still locked inside. I now feel a sudden urgency to own my story, bring my creative gifts to light, and truly thrive—and I know I am not alone in that desire. I created Share The Salt, because it’s the space I wish I always had: A safe space for people of color to put ourselves first, ask courageous questions, explore our creative potential, and find healing through creative expression.
