About Us

Turning Thoughts Into Actions

Founded by Sara Rose Salih in 2021, The Usual Artspects is a non-profit organization where creativity meets healing. The proceeds from our art shows, vendor markets, concerts, and silent auctions go towards creating affordable and healing programs for women who have survived sexual assault and trauma.

Our Vision

Our vision is to provide prevention education that promotes social change to end sexual abuse and design affordable artistic programs of healing for survivors. We will do this through diverse and self-expressive programs comprising art therapy, music/voice/sound healing, creative writing courses, martial arts/self-defense classes, and improvisational comedy.
