What we do
The House of Heart is twofold:
An Artist hub for the emerging art community that provides virtual and in-person opportunities including; curated exhibitions, publications, critiques, and networking events.
A creative studio that harnesses the individual talents of our dedicated team of artists and provides an array of services to our clients.
Why we do it
The House of Heart is a homage to the longstanding tradition of “houses” in ball culture within LGBTQ communities. The “house” represents the chosen families of those who feel like outsiders and provides them with a safe space to nurture their familial, domestic, and creative needs.
The House of Heart aims to provide just that; an inclusive space for creatives to come together and nurture their talents. During these times, it’s more important than ever to embrace community and work together to find ways to support each other. We hope you can find your new home at The House of Heart!
