Regenerate the People

2020 has been a year of struggle! Find ways to regenerate yourself with self care packages and artwork in our online auction! Get a chance to replenish your wallet through our cash raffle; tickets can be purchased here:

Proceeds from our online auction will help us continue to raise youth voices, offer healing through glassblowing and ceramics, access to mental health support, and basic needs such as meals, safe transportation and hygiene products.

Throughout COVID, Firebird has and continues to be at the front, making sure its community has had access to basic needs, mental health supports, continued employment, and communication with peers and adults. It leans on its participants, as experts in trauma recovery, and shares their voices broadly so our entire Firebird community can feel supported by their resiliency, their joy, and their intelligence as we battle through this collective trauma together.

So although we can't be together in person, we can come together to help ensure that Firebird participants, among those hardest hit by COVID and systemic racism, get the support they need, and their brilliant voices are heard now, when we need them most.

Invoices and payment processing will be generated after the auction closes on Oct. 8th.

About Firebird Community Arts

Our mission is to empower and connect people through the healing practice of glassblowing and ceramics.

We serve those who have been impacted by structural or individual trauma, including violently-injured youth, veterans, formerly-incarcerated individuals, undocumented and immigrant populations and Chicago Public School students on the South and West sides. We help people heal primarily by teaching glassblowing and ceramics - media that are typically expensive and difficult to access, but by their very nature elicit healing and build community. We provide a safe space, linkages to relevant wrap-around services, and professional and educational pathways for under-represented communities in the arts.
