to organize, recognize, & celebrate(!) marginalized creatives via pop-up events throughout New York’s Hudson Valley.
Statistics show that many populations of people have been historically excluded and underpaid in fine arts spaces such as galleries, museums, performance venues, and more throughout the world. Founded in 2018, Celebrate845 aims to provide platform, opportunity, and agency for marginalized creatives to share their work in these spaces with a larger goal of decolonizing the arts. We create space for the community to come together, share experiences via the arts, and learn from one another while centering those who have been left out. Over time, we have expanded our mission to be more intersectional and include more people, as we are mightier when we are together.
We prioritize compensating participating artists and collaborators for their efforts, making our events accessible to be part of and attend, not taking commission on sold work, working with venues that are like-minded, sourcing supplies and food locally, and using our platform to amplify important work led by those most impacted across the 845. We are committed to holding space, sharing resources, and helping to make and keep the Hudson Valley creative community excellent.
