Tea Roots is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization formed to empower social change through the arts. Founded originally in 1995 as a not-for-profit publishing program, Tea Roots started producing cultural arts events that were dedicated to providing equitable access to artistic venues. Tea Roots advances the artistic works of under-represented writers, visual artists, and activists from diverse disciplines, cultures, communities, and fields of study.
Tea Roots' mission is to advance artists who represent and support progressive thinking in the arts and literary communities in order to increase diversity and social justice awareness among the broader community at large. Tea Roots implements its mission by promoting artists and writers from diverse cultures and origins by:
• Publishing their works in high-quality mediums.
• Producing collaborative artistic opportunities and cultural events.
• Presenting emerging and professional artists to new audiences through various artistic venues.
Tea Roots aims to expand the venues available to emerging and professional artists and writers from diverse cultures and communities to celebrate and share their creative expression. Our aim is to strengthen progressive thought among the larger community and foster a consciousness centered on social change.
