The Beautiful Project is a movement of inspiration to help humanity live a better right now and is guided by the following principles:
Self-discovery – honor your self
Acceptance – accept who you truly are
Kindness – be gentle and compassionate to life
Gratitude – realize the grandeur of life
Love is love – the guiding force within us
In 2009, The Beautiful Project, came to fruition through a series of life events, that called to Michael Ciavatta, to create a movement that would uplift and inspire communities locally and globally through the sharing of stories of struggle, challenges and the ability to overcome them, through creativity and art.
Through a shared experience in our most vulnerable state, when we share our struggles and learn to accept them and us for what they are, and who we truly are, we can begin to switch the narrative from a lack of understanding to one of complete understanding. The Beautiful Project, gathers artists from all walks of life to share their story and the triumph over their every struggle by uplifting themselves through creativity. When presented in a synchronized effort on stage or through outreach, the key themes that The Beautiful Project represents are easily grasped by the minds and hearts of all. Both the artists and participants of The Beautiful Project, are offered an opportunity to better understand themselves and others. Wherever you are in life, or whoever you are, we help to encourage self expression through self discovery. The question then, is are you ready to unfold the beauty that life offers in each
Currently, our society is disconnected from ourselves, technologically we are more connected, yet our relationship to others and ourselves is strained. Overrun with anxiety, depression and our struggles we forget often the beauty that life offers when we open to it. The Beautiful Project is a sign of hope in a climate of rough tides. By exploring together themes of Self Discovery, Acceptance, Kindness, Gratitude and love, The Beautiful Project works to authentically find solutions that will inspire and uplift each of us. Combining creativity and inspiration with an honest dialogue of understanding we can shift our awareness to a deeper perspective that will aid each individual on their life path.
Whether on stage at venues and schools or through webinars and continued outreach each participant of The Beautiful Project, has the opportunity to find community through relief together. While there is not one answer to navigating life’s many paths, The Beautiful Project offers a safe avenue for each to explore solutions to life’s trials and tribulations. Our aim, is to co-create a better understanding of the individual and collective life expression.
Now, more than ever before, it is imperative to unfold and expand through kindness, and compassion an acceptance for each walk of life regardless of race,religion,sex, and creed. It is long overdue to come together in hopes of elevating ourselves collectively to make our world a brighter place for everyone of its inhabitants. While we may not have all the answers, united we can accomplish more and achieve a more compassionate world view.
