About CreActiv's Activism-Based Programming

The Picture of Health 

The Picture of Health is an invisible illness awareness program inspired by Leslie's own struggles with invisible illness. It seeks to highlight individuals living with invisible physical, chronic, and mental illnesses. Through the art of photography, it shows people living with these illnesses in the manner in which they present themselves daily, focusing on the perceived ‘normalcy’ of people housed in ill bodies. 

In May 2019, we kicked off with a photo exhibit showcasing people with invisible illnesses. We now host several events for project, including a  round table and panel discussions. In October 2019, we received mayoral proclamation for Invisible Illness Awareness Week, Oct. 13 – 19, 2019.

Louisiana Artists for Puerto Rico

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.
