At MHz Foundation, we stand in solidarity with those protesting anti-black violence and stand committed to using our platform to advance anti-racist efforts. With the Curationist project, we are attempting to generate a platform that allows people to share stories of their cultural perspectives through art. Art helps shift perspectives and has the capacity to change hearts and minds.


As our team looks to find ways to generate content which can be a celebration of the history and contributions of African Americans through the Curationist editorial platform, the staff and Board will begin work developing and publishing a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion plan to guide how we engage with curators, contributors, staff, editors, and our wider community. Once a plan is in place, I am committed to working with the Board to shape the Foundation’s annual Strategic Plans through that lens.


I hope that, in doing so, we can become a resource for other organizations and can learn and collaborate with other organizations committed to anti-racist art and cultural heritage work.


All the best,


Christian Dawson
