ABOUT THIS EVENT
Arts & DIY
We invite you to come to YAB HQ on the evening of July 20th to celebrate our differences and see how we are beautiful together.
We are all creative. The community surrounding the You Are Beautiful project is an incredibly creative and sharing group of individuals, and we want to celebrate this together!
We all are creative in some way or another. Whether you identify as an artist or a designer, someone who uses art for therapy, a maker or a hacker, or even just a tinkerer. No matter how you add your voice or ideas to the world, it’s you — and it’s beautiful.
We believe in making. YAB HQ is our studio, but the dream is that it grows into something more — a community hub of sharing creativity with each other, a place for individuals to play, to try something new, and take risks in a safe space. We’re constantly hosting workshops in our space, to offer a hands-on experience in making.
Now we’ve taken it a step further, and given out YAB DIY boards to anyone who would like to create, experiment and add their voice to the positive message. The boards have been given to known artists and designers, and also to those just dipping their toe in the waters of creativity. Who knows? For someone starting out, it may be the first piece of what becomes an entire career or side hustle. (After all, You Are Beautiful started as a nights & weekends side project for many years).
We are beautiful. Each of us is incredibly unique and complex (that’s putting it lightly!), and also share so much in common with each other. As we live our lives and grow as individuals, we begin to find our tribe: a community of people who share the same core values as we do, and are also open and engaging with what makes us different.
On Saturday, July 20th from 6-10pm, see many unique boards painted by individuals in our YAB HQ Gallery.
Go into the studio in the back, and get hands-on painting your own board or making your own shirt (for purchase).
Be sure to RSVP to get your Beautiful Together Token upon entry!
This all-ages event is open to everyone.Cancellation Policy

MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST
You Are Beautiful began in 2002 as a sticker spreading a hopeful message through public art. Our goal? To be a positive force and transmit a simple idea: Everyone deserves to feel good.
Soon, we were shipping stickers around the globe, in one-hundred languages. Since then, our project has actively combatted negativity by distributing millions of stickers, and grown into various large-scale wood installations and murals, as well as collaborations with many designers, students, and artists worldwide. Our community-based message always includes your voice, and we invite you to keep sharing hope with your world.
