Inspirations studio is a unique hybrid social enterprise/self-employment program for women who have been impacted by poverty, trauma, homelessness, mental and physical health or addiction issues. Through the making and selling of their pottery, members gain stability, a sense of community, supplemental income, a creative practice and a new way to see themselves.
We are heartbroken to share that Inspirations Studio is facing imminent closure. For 23 years, the ceramics-based program has supported hundreds of low-income women who have been impacted by poverty, homelessness, addiction, trauma, and mental health issues. Please consider supporting Inspirations Studio on their CandaHelps fundraising page:
The fundraising campaign will raise funds for rent and studio supplies so the members can continue to access a creative space, generate income and maintain a sense of meaning and purpose. Inspirations Studio is a one-of-a-kind program and has provided scores of women with a lifeline for 23 years. It would be a tragedy to let it come to an end in such a short time. Thank you for your support and for spreading the word!
