The color blind default

“Color blindness occurs when you are unable to see colors in a normal way. It is also known as color deficiency. Color blindness often happens when someone cannot distinguish between certain colors.” 

MiA Magazine is color blind.


Our strength derives from our vulnerability to be impartial to the color of our artists, writers, contributors, etc. The individuals in and beyond our pages come from a variety of races, creeds, and backgrounds. We come together in unity to achieve numerous goals.


Below is the mission statement for 1000WORDS Art Group.


Mission: An artist-run collective seeking to guide, educate and promote artists of all contemporary genres. Values: Respect, Creativity, Accountability, Drive, Passion, Resourcefulness, Solidarity.


Vision: The establishment of one of the largest art communities in North America which positively influences the creative world while offering opportunity and exposure to all creative people.

MiA is about the business of celebrating all of the artmakers; painters, sculptors, photographers, writers etc. We engage with established artists, explore the emerging ones, guide, and support all. Our goal is to reveal those creatives and make you, the reader, aware of their existence.


Other passions we have are educating and informing. We are fortunate to have a handful of educators who long to share about art history, how to navigate the artworld, instruct various techniques, and more. At MIA expect to be informed of upcoming events relating to the artists we feature and how current events relate to the creative realm.


Our success depends on an open mind and heart. There are no limitations on how we see and engage with all of whom believe in our purpose. Understand that it is NOT about the color of one’s skin, but rather the multitudes of colors used to express oneself.


Stand with us and choose to be a part of our purpose. There is strength in numbers. Be inspired and motivated so that we may be color blind together.
