The event will take place virtually with Live IG talks throughout the week. We'll be chatting with the artists about their process and more via both @themakeandmary and @stonedwarecompany


We’ll be donating to p:ear and The Oregon Justice Resource Center.

100% of the proceeds will go towards arts education for homeless youth and to help in the efforts of expunging criminal sentences for cannabis related offenses. Many folks of color are in jail for possession charges in many states, including California & Oregon. Today they might not be.

p:ear is a non-profit that mentors houseless teens through creative practices. OJR has a holistic approach to criminal justice with a goal to promote civil rights & legal representation of communities that have been underserved—people living in poverty and people of color.
