Creative self expression as an affirming activity and inclusive processes respectful of all members of the community.
Mixed Palette Inc. sees inclusion as an active and ongoing process which is encouraged through creative self expression, respect and reciprocation, contribution, varying requirements of time, opportunity for choice, and a suitable physical environment.
Creative Self Expression
There is positive benefit that comes from igniting creative self expression within each of us.
Respect and Reciprocation
Relationships based on respectful worth and reciprocal contribution foster positive growth.
Participation relies on contribution. Everyone has something to contribute within an inclusive community.
Each of us needs differing amounts of time in order to enjoy the process of creativity in our own way.
Being presented with choices, making decisions and working with the results of those decisions is part of everyday life and individual growth.
The physical environment impacts on the creative experience. Also the environment where public works or exhibitions are displayed impacts on the artist's esteem and the esteem bestowed on the artist by others.
