Our heart is for the tortured artist

Be Hue is an artist-initiated passion project where art and collaboration become the vehicle where we challenge the stereotype of the tortured artist and break the stigma in local artistic communities. Whether artists are just starting out, emerging, or thriving as a professional, we all deal with creative roadblocks, mental health issues and so much more that can get in the way of our success as artists.

Painter Jean-Michel Basquiat was depressed and traumatized by his childhood yet, he strived in the 80's. 

Musician Amy Winehouse died at the age of 27 from drug abuse and alcohol poisoning.

 

In July 2023 creative Angus Cloud dealt with grief and passed away from suicide at the age of 25. 

 

The list goes on...

The success and talent of an artist are always celebrated, while the well-being of an artist is inevitably overlooked. Providing creatives access to a community of like-minded individuals, mental health resources, and supporting mental health advocates, allows Be Hue to become a solution for creatives searching for purpose.
Unlike other memberships, creatives have no membership fees to join us. Because our heart is for the creative, as a for-profit we put the responsibility on to local communities to support programming for local artists through donations and collaborations.

Because Be Hue is not considered therapy, artists will have access to mental health resources if further help is needed. Artists get to transform untraditional and public spaces through collaborative work, all while connecting to purpose and bettering their mental well-being.
