The What’s Your Elephant™ series has typically explored many ‘elephants,’ though sometimes there is an annual focus. This year, our series will highlight LGBTQ+ communities. We will be collaborating with grassroots community partners such as NAMI Broward County, World AIDS Museum and Educational Center, Ujima Men’s Collective, South Florida Afro Pride Federation, Black Lesbian Archives, The National Gardenia Society, Jewish Community Services of South Florida (JCS) and Transpire Trainings & Consulting, and inviting our communities to make art, get vulnerable, and connect.
This series will run from August 2021 – January 2022
WYE 2021/2022 will offer a hybrid of both in-person and virtual events.

This program was made possible by a grant from Our Fund Foundation, an LGBTQ Community Foundation.
About What’s Your Elephant:
The What’s Your Elephant is a movement that uses the arts to create a safe space to address the unspoken.
What’s Your Elephant™ (WYE) is a combination of art exhibits, interactive installations, discussions, and workshops that are designed to provoke awareness by unveiling unaddressed topics. Themes often include but are not limited to: gender, sexuality, discrimination, and abuse. WYE shows us how art can heal and be a tool to process complex conversations, helping us to unpack the things that we, and the world around us, are challenged by. WYE also intentionally aims to destigmatize mental health topics and counseling.
