About

WHO WE ARE

Spoke N’ Heard is a collective of artists, entrepreneurs and social innovators, united by our passion for social change and community empowerment, with a focus on the holistic progression of humanity through the arts. This organization was started out of a desire to provide youth/young adults with a safe space where they can share their stories and experiences. Through our events, programs and campaigns we aim to spread awareness regarding mental health stigmatization and address issues of equity facing individuals from marginalized and racialized communities.
