The HEAR US ROAR visual chapter book was sparked over conversations with local Chicago artists and friends about the need for a space to share important stories. HEAR US ROAR's focus is giving artists from different mediums a platform to share their stories, feelings/emotions, dreams, fears, happiness, whatever they like - it is OUR collaborative safe space that celebrates US and OUR artistic gift.
