Our mission is to expand the spectrum of opportunities available to emerging BI&POC artists by supporting self-exploration, self-care, and contemplative practices.
We are anchored in the parallels drawn from the environment with respect to human growth, social justice imperatives, cultural and ancestral inheritance,
and a profound love for the Arts.
The physical home of The Chrysalis Institute is currently on the unceded land of Three Fires Confederacy – the Ojibwe, the Odawa, and the Pottawatomi. Great Lakes region Indigenous nations are known as the Anishinaabe (Ah-nish-nah-bay), or original people; their language is Anishinaabemowin (Ah-nish-nah-bay-mow-in). We recognize, honor, and respect the relationship between the People of the Three Fires, specifically the
Match-e-be-nash-she-wish band of the Pottawatomi people, and this land.
