our project

As part of Break the Silence 2019, we present The Lotus Collective! The Lotus Collective is a digital anthology that seeks to showcase artwork exploring the intersectionality between mental health and the Asian/Asian American experience.

Every Friday throughout the month of March, we will release a new theme. Pick a theme that resonates with you and create a piece (or pieces!) of artwork inspired by that theme.

We accept artwork of any form and you can choose from any of the themes we roll out. Whether you are an undergraduate student, a graduate student, or a community member, we welcome your artwork!

ABOUT OUR

Welcome! The Lotus Collective gathers Asian & Asian American artists from all over the world to explore culture, mental health, and identity. As youth growing up between multiple cultural backgrounds, we integrate both into our identities and see the world through a unique filter. The Lotus Collective hopes to shed light on our struggles, triumphs, and perspectives—illustrating the undeniable beauty of unity in diversity.
