At Humans in Harmony, we believe the power of arts to connect people across cultural and geographic boundaries. In this unstable time of the COVID-19, it is more important than ever to find creative ways to connect with each other. Humans in Harmony is adapting to these difficult times by using virtual means to connect people from different backgrounds.
This summer we launched a virtual Collaborative Arts Project, connecting people from the United States to the Netherlands to China in creating multimedia art projects and sharing our stories together in this isolated period of time. Please join us in celebrating the beautiful art that our participants have been making at our online exhibition, https://collabarts.myportfolio.com/, and newly released EP!
We hope to develop these virtual capabilities in our student chapters and organizational partner process during the coming year, when many of us will be cut off from in-person contact with our communities, and when it will be more important than ever to connect.
We are looking forward to more ways to connect through arts in times of isolation. Help us to build and support such activities through this campaign, to raise funds for:
Website development, exhibition, music platform: $750
-To generate an interactive experience by allowing collaborators to connect to each other’s profiles
-To allow participants to create individual profiles and facilitate the pairing process
-To exhibit artistic creations and set up a browsable archive of creative works
Student network + partners operations: $800
-Virtual outreach to chapters and organizations
-Creating a system to operate activities virtually, e.g., through video interaction with organization staff, community members, and students
-Launching HiH chapters globally with partner community organizations and individuals
-Developing capacity on Connection Board leadership to organize and direct activities, connecting with and growing a network of chapters and partner organizations
Music and art equipment, resources, online platforms: $350
Communications, PO box, space, transport: $500
We will also share works from the virtual CollabArts project in furthering aims of social connection and community, and publish all creative works on our website or through Spotify/Apple Music. The collective projects will all be a part of our HiH Online Exhibition under a central theme based on the works created. In addition, as we expand student and community networks, your support will help us sustain collaborative arts workshops with service organizations and participants.

We are a grassroots, community 501(c)(3) organization and all our resources and workshops are made accessible to the public. In our projects and workshops with social service organizations and student chapters, our participants create collaborative arts and music to foster social connection and co-create future possibilities together.
In the past, we have organized collaborative songwriting workshops with student chapters and social service organizations serving children in foster care and at-risk youth (Ali Forney Center), patients in cancer support groups (Irving Cancer Center), veterans and elderly in community living (Bronx VA Hospital, Isabella Geriatric Center), and individuals with disabilities (AHRC NYC). Our student chapters include NYU, Princeton, Columbia, Columbia Med, and Einstein Med.
