Activism-Based Programming 

The Picture of Health 

The Picture of Health is an invisible illness awareness program inspired by Leslie's own struggles with chronic pain. Through the art of photography, it seeks to highlight individuals living with invisible physical, chronic, and mental conditions in an effort to normalize illness.  

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

Louisiana Artists for Puerto Rico

In September 2018, the first Louisiana 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.
