new arrivals at uncovered artistry nonprofit boutique

I’ve got some excellent news! Uncovered Artistry— the nonprofit I founded with my sister five years ago that sells the work of domestic abuse survivors– has NEW ARRIVALS! They’re a while in the making, but I am so proud of the new styles we have up. Our products– all handmade items– are made by domestic abuse survivors… with the exception of these newest additions.

The new arrivals were actually made by volunteers at various events the Uncovered Artistry Project has hosted throughout the years. Participants made the designs using new and recycled jewelry pieces and graciously donated them to the online boutique. And now, I am very happy to say that many of them are up for sale online.

And keep your eye out…there’s more on the way, too!

So what is the Uncovered Artistry Project and boutique?

It started with a simple equation. 

Art + Entrepreneurship = Empowerment. Add a couple business-savvy ladies and a serendipitous grant from Projects for Peace, and you’ve got yourself Uncovered Artistry Boutique. We’re a little shop built on the belief that business fosters empowerment in all its flavors (financial, personal, emotional, et al.). Our little piece of this cyber world sells the creative work of domestic and sexual abuse survivors, individuals who, more than most, benefit from the uplifting effects of art and business. Our roots are planted deep in Midwest soil, yet our reach extends to all those with an Internet connection and a penchant for joyful shopping. Shop the boutique today.

Cheers!

UncoveredAristry

Four years ago, my sister and I started this small online non-profit boutique. Today my sister is abroad living and working in the Netherlands, and I’m working in the wondrous world of fashion in Pittsburgh, PA. Now that we can no longer run the organization together from our dorm room or basement, we wanted to make sure we still had a simple, straight-forward way to promote what we’re doing at Uncovered Artistry. So today, UA-related updates and behind the scenes stories live here with me on MiaPrimaCasa, which only makes sense really: the organization is a significant part of my experience as a post-grad twenty-something. To filter to UA specific posts, choose “The Uncovered Artistry Project” under Categories.

The Uncovered Artistry Project

Two and a half years ago my sister and I founded The Uncovered Artistry Project, a non-profit that sells the art of domestic and sexual abuse survivors. The idea is simple. Art + Entrepreneurship = Empowerment. I’m proud to say (and proud to promote!) our new website (www.UncoveredArtistry.com). Even better for everyone else is that all our products, jewelry, candles, you name it, are 20% off and free shipping this month. Plus it’s for a pretty darn good cause.
