A Creative Approach To Wellness.
Be Where You Art is a TGM project whose mission is to engage creative approaches to mental health and wellness through various types of artistic mediums. We strongly believes that everyone is an artist until it is shamed out of them and that everyone is on their own creative journey. Led by our TGM team members, Be Where You Art is used as a space to grow, create and learn together.

Ephemera Art Show
Ephemera is our visual art gallery space in which presenting and featured artists showcase their art and how it pertains to their identity. Exploring the various intersections of identity, diversity and how the medium can draw them together, we invite you to take on this journey of exploration with our artists.

Rooted in mindfulness practices, meditative drawing is an in-the-moment activity that calms the nervous system, reduces anxiety, and helps with emotional regulation. This technique can be done anytime, anywhere, making it a really *handy* coping skill!
[Letters From A Therapist are] like a really warm and fuzzy hug via 🐌 mail and it is beyond amazing. Every single thing was handpicked for me and I can’t wait to put it all up in my office as a daily reminder that I am so loved. We all need this! I’m about to send out a whole bunch of these and surprise my friends.
I loved being able to showcase my art to a unique and new group of community members, something I wouldn’t be able to achieve without spaces like Ephemera. I can’t wait to come back!
