Welcome to the new structure for GUILDWORKSiAbraham’s original guild of faith-based artists, and the brand-spankdified new home for the welcoming new faith-informed artists into GUILDWORKSiAbraham, and deXgnHYVE’s worldwide initiatives in music, design, streetArt, found + applied arts – all creating a unique kind of cultural diplomacy through Urban Outreach. GUILDWORKSiAbraham (501c3) not-for-profit brings together our global cadre of visual and verbal artists, designers, musicians, slam-poets, MCs, beat-makers, producers and other artists working through the most visceral verbal|visual|aural arts to reconnect and heal a world through social and spiritual beautification. Sometimes that means disruption in the matrix. And disruption isn’t always pretty. It doesn’t sell commercially, it doesn’t populate window displays, it doesn’t make the top-ten anything and it mostly doesn’t make its makers a living. Ask VanGogh, or Basquiat or Beethoven.
Coming together as a community, GUILDWORKSiAbraham has a deep commitment to putting arts and music in service to those in marginalized communities, the homeless, addicted and the mass incarcerated – as well as those suffering the indignities of race and immigration issues. Through the unique models and partnerings of our sister business GUILDWORKS deXgnHYVE, GUILDWORKSiAbraham core of artists, (through music, visual and verbal arts and multimedia) create modern spiritual soulfood and sustenance as shared soul-food to sustain those of us hangin’ in the hyve.
GUILDWORKS iAbraham innovates new models of radical hospitality in reconciliation, restorative social-justice and spiritual repair for our downtrodden in urban areas and inner-cities, poor and struggling global communities. Through the vehicle business of GUILDWORKS deXgnHYVE sales from all works of GUILDWORKSiAbraham artists are tax-deductible purchases, and as with all purchases from GUILDWORKS companies, 10% of all proceeds directly fund GUILDWORKSiAbraham Interfaith Urban Outreach.
