The uprising begins with U!
KR8TiVE Uprising, Inc. is a global creative community-building "incubator" based at the crossroads of South Florida. Our KR8TiVE Rebels use expressive arts, movement, and the exploration of KR8TiVE energy to rebuild and reconnect marginalized communities through innovative workshops, performances, KR8TiVE wellness retreats, and community arts initiatives.
Incorporated on June 1st, 2017, our services explore creativity and inspire healing, connection, mindfulness, and social justice.
We are unique because:
Participants have an immersive experience that inspires creative mindfulness, social awareness, change, and responsibility.
Our community initiatives preserve holistic healing practices and cultural arts of Africa and its diaspora.
Our services are accessible to all and inspire a sense of creative individuality and connection through various healing arts modalities.
Our vision is a healthy and empowered global community with creative value, equity, cultural enrichment, and preservation within marginalized communities.
Provides interactive community art projects, workshops, experiences, and events that actively integrate the arts and the community through the innovative collaboration of artists, performers, educators, and other stakeholders.
Ensure that all performances, workshops, and community initiatives are designed to bring diverse people together, especially marginalized groups, and build on existing assets that reflect healthy community values.
"We are one of many, fragments of nature; connected to all, similar and different at the same time. We can all rise with the abundance and power of our creativity.
The more we create change, connection, and awareness, the more we heal,
and inspire others to do the same"
