About CreActiv's Current Programming

The Picture of Health (#TPOHBR) 

Through the art of photography, #TPOHBR shows people with invisible illnesses in the manner in which they present themselves daily. Using a mixture of head shots, full body shots, and shots of the individual’s hands holding up a sign detailing their illness, the program focuses on the perceived ‘normalcy’ of people housed in ill bodies. The mission is to highlight invisible illness, elicit compassion, and promote education on a variety of health issues.

CreActiv hosted a kick off for #TPOHBR's first yearlong iteration on May 29, 2019 in partnership with Dr. Leone Elliott and The Healthcare Gallery.  

Louisiana Artists for Puerto Rico (La Artists for PR)

The mission of La Artists for PR is to keep Puerto Rico's need for support at the forefront of the conversation. Through this program, we mix our artistic passion and lived experiences to continually uplift and support our island family through programming, campaigns, fundraisers, and community initiatives.

In September 2018, the first La Artists for PR event was held, in partnership with The Baton Rouge Gallery. The event featured 26 performance and visual artists in a variety show style function and silent auction. We raised $2000 on a $0 budget to benefit Americas for the Conservation and the Arts' PR Resilience Fund to support El Departamento de la Comida's mission to restore 200 farms on the island in 24 months.
