Welcome to Emergence Arts Collective, a safe space where creatives can share resources and experiences, uplift each other through great challenges in our labors of love, and continue to inspire art and wonder in our communities.

Kelly M. Coffey is a photographer, creative healing life coach, and founder and director of Emergence Arts and vedhead Photography.

What has been a lifelong passion for bringing the arts to the masses is now my life mission. Art and photography are healing practices that I have used to explore and realign my values ​​and meditate, contemplate and process life lessons. Art is an expression of vulnerable communications and can be used to facilitate difficult but much needed conversations.

Art can be culinary, musical, fashion, yoga, print or spoken, as well as photography, performance, dance and filmmaking. Art allows us to be as weird as we want, to reconstruct our ideas – the ideas of who we are, how we identify with ourselves, what our relationship is with the people we meet, and pave the paths ahead of us. Art is a lifeline. It helps clear the mind, spirit and heart to create space for all things fresh and new. There is power in the organized collective – Peace is mission. Are you ready to express yourself?

Donations are always encouraged and welcome to help support living artists. What we do is a labor of love and often surrounded by misconceptions that artists don’t work very hard, but we do. We work very hard to bring inspiration and hope back to the world.

Please support living artists by donating if you can. Every penny goes to keeping most events free, but still fun, educational, inspiring, and helpful! We promote safe spaces for community artists and business owners to thrive. My share goes directly to supplies for introducing artists and galleries, mentoring and coaching artists in their careers, paid marketing, creating paid jobs and residencies for artists and mentors, and even more.

Anything you can do to help us achieve success is greatly appreciated!

Kelly M. Coffey
