Solange’s online platform, Saint Heron, is undergoing a huge revamp, set to bring us art, design, literature, emotional wellbeing, and more.
The Grammy Award-winning singer, Solange, is widening her online musical and cultural hub, Saint Heron.
The virtual space is now set to include advice and services toward creative direction, architecture, special design, production design, scenic design, curatorial strategy, video and content production.
Alongside these new forums for advice, the platform will offer two additional channels: the Holism Project, “built to bring holistic healing and wellness to Black women, girls and communities of colour” – this includes trauma therapy, mentorship, safe housing and support toward emotional wellbeing – and The Digital Dossier, which will seek to publish the best new literary voices, as well as organising virtual exhibitions from artists and designers.
The platform has made the statement: “We focus on supporting woman on the frontlines fighting for justice around the world as well as families dealing with the mental and emotional strain due to police violence.”
Small Matter Studio and Gallery will also be relaunched, hosting art and design collections, residencies and a public library.
Saint Heron was founded out of the Texan musician’s desire to “amplify vital voices”. With the community’s impressive expansion, they are already well on their way to achieving that goal, perhaps even world dominion.
