Firstly, we want to salute the thousands and thousands of people doing amazing things in Baltimore and beyond. While we wish that every single person doing amazing things could be listed, we also realize that if they were we would have a ceremony lasting for months. We want to take this time to thank and salute anyone and everyone doing any and everything to make this city a thriving community.

Our organization strives to inspre individuals to take small and large meaningful actions of affirmation and kindess that make a positive impact around them. Our organization believes that by working together we can address the challenges facing our city and create a bright future for all Baltimore Residents. Through our hundreds of events, programs, and initiatives over the last two decades, we aim to strengthen the cultural fabric of Baltimore and create a loving, welcoming, and supportive environment for all members of the community. We seek to to inspire individuals to foster pride and ownership in the city of Baltimore and to create a legacy of love that will endure for generations to come and spill over to other cities, states, countries and ultimately the world.

Our events and programs foster a vibrant and inclusive arts and culture community. We provide platforms and training for youth, local multi-generational artiss, musicians, creatives, activists and entrepreneurs to showcase theri talents, collaborate with each other and connect with audiences. Our ultimate goal is to create a Baltimore where individuals feel valued and included, and where the power of human connection is harnessed to drive positive change and progress.
