    This video recaps what happened during our BAAR Art Journey and Residency pilot program which started October 2, 2022. In this video you see the artists preparing for the BERLIN FILES art exhibition which is an extension of the UNAPOLOGETIC art exhibition which first took place at Stiftung Starke in Berlin. This program was created by Wilhelmina Jewell Sparks in order to aid with creators equity and generational wealth. The program is meant to support artists with their craft and aid with creating ArtPreneurs. The ArtPreneur©  element of the program teaches artists financial literacy, elements regarding their works, and art sales are inclusive of royalties paid to artists upfront, as well as a donation to the artist to invest in a charitable organization of their choice.
