"The Mutagens"
An Anthology
Fundraiser

for Ukrainian Humanitarian Aid

This anthology is a fundraiser for Ukrainian aid. 100% of profits will be donated to humanitarian aid charities by Culturally Arts Collective.

 

The Mutagens is a 118-page anthology of art, poetry, and writings created by the people, for the people. Curated and gathered by Culturally Arts Collective. A world full of injustice and fear gave birth to original paintings, poems, and writing, 37 authors take us on a journey through their worlds in which they stand up against the inflicting pain caused by others through the trauma ingrained in the war zones of memories of it. Artists coming from over 12 different countries share their perspectives through the best medium of expression available -- their souls themselves, wrapped in an art piece that came through in this collection. The voice of people gives us hope in its rawest form, showing that we, humans, can survive any threat to our own existence and despite our differences we will come united and stronger to overcome anything we need.

Weekly Children's Art Classes with
Community Partners

Home of the Innocents is a nonprofit children’s nursing home that looks after neglected kids and fosters them with the care they should receive if they are unable to remain in the care of their families. Culturally Arts Collective has partnered with Home of the Innocents to bring their kids the opportunity to do art through the Virtual Art Workshops. Every week, students join a zoom call and engage with a bit of art history, after which they draw or paint their own works inspired by what they learnt from the lesson. The students experiment with color, drawing and sketching techniques and creative skills which they might not have had the chance to do so before. One of Culturally Arts Collective missions is to increase arts accessibility and provide everyone with access to some form of art, and this partnership with Home of the Innocents is one further step in achieving that mission.

Christmas From
Mexico: A Ballet 
Concert

Missed the magic of a show live on stage? Look no further! Support the arts his holiday season by immersing yourself in a professional production Christmas dance concert. *THIS IS A VIRTUAL EVENT VIA ZOOM! JOIN US VIRTUALLY FROM AROUND THE WORLD! THE SHOW IS A LIVE STREAM OF THE IN-PERSON STAGE PERFORMANCE LIVE FROM PUEBLA, MEXICO.

 

"X-MAS FROM MEXICO" Performance Synopsis: 

 

Lupita is very sad because she is alone, she is a poor girl and lives in the streets of Mexico City…she is homeless. Christmas….she does not understand why people celebrate all that. She has no idea what it means to see so much color, so much abundance in both food and gifts.

 

On the eve of Christmas, the spirit of the past manifests itself to Lupita to show her the traditions, how they were and how they should prevail over time.

 

The spirit of Christmas present is responsible for showing Lupita how people have changed traditions and focus more on the material. It teaches you what really matters, it teaches you a lesson in the true meaning of Christmas.

 

When the spirit of the future appears to Lupita, Lupita sees herself grown up. Trying to enforce the traditions that the spirit of the past showed her, so as not to have to live Christmas as the spirit of the present taught her and all of us.
