Now What?

Take a Day of Rest This Week

Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you. – Anne Lamott

For each person, self-care looks different, but doing something self-nourishing this week is a priority. Regardless of the outcome of the elections, there’s a lot of work still to be done, so give yourself some much deserved down time. 

Get Out The Vote With Us!

Arts + Activism = #Artivism, — a movement is growing in Tennessee, led by Music City’s own! ⚡️⚡️⚡️ BriteHeart co-founder Kate Tucker talks with Adam Gold of VICE about the impact of artists like Taylor Swift stepping up and speaking out.

#GetCivic!

Right now in America, we stand a country divided — and this moment of anxiety and divisiveness calls for a new approach to maintaining a healthy, active citizenry. In a country held together not by race or religion, but by a common creed, how do we maintain any sense of national cohesion?

East Nashville Get Out The Vote!

East Nashville Get Out The Vote! 10.03.18 Tennessee is 50th in voter participation and 40th in registration* and it’s time to make a comeback. On October 3, Grimey’s, WeWork in East Nashville, The Basement East and BriteHeart join forces to get-out-the-vote, registering friends, neighbors, coworkers and bandmates in a day long festival.

You’re Invited…

Access your inner #artivist and join us for WE ARE SEEDS – Mural Painting Block Party on September 22, a joint effort by BriteHeart, Southern Women for Civil Rights and The Deane Foundation to engage, connect, empower positive change through collaborative arts-driven community building and civic participation.

Center 615 has generously donated a 1,925 square foot wall behind their facility directly facing the Parkway Terrace Housing Community and together, we will transform it into a permanent art piece during a day of a day of painting, song, dance, food, refreshments, games and new friends.
