Vibrating Three Dimensional Energy

That’s what’s happening. This universe, this planet, this country, this very vibrational moment in creation. Dimensions of humanistic expansions and remembrances of knowledge. Cutting edge knowledge that will be communicated through literature, science and the arts is truly about to blow-up!

AutismHWY has continually advocated for this rediscovery. The rediscovery of our instinctual and natural ways of being and loving. A momentus universal expansion which cannot be stopped. We’ve called it all along in this great decade of communicative change 2010~2020. A decade which has been exponentially hypercharged by technology and the connectivity of diverse cultures. In the fall of 2017 this was most apparent at this years very emotionally charged 2017 Ventura Art and Street Painting Festival. What a fantastic group of organizers, artisans and spectators understanding these vibrations of great change. Artists like Tracy Lee Stum and Rod Tryon taking us into dimensions we have not been before! WOW…So much love all under the sun moon and stars equally!

This was AutismHWY’s 4th trip to this stellar event sharing the work of Autistic Artisans. In year’s past we have shared the work of talented friends Nora Blansett, Nele Muyleart, Maryellen Szper and this year the work of April Dawn Griffin.
April lives in Canada and views the northern lights. Her art reflects so much of the world’s natural energy making her work a fitting choice for this time in history! This very powerful piece titled “Bring It On” was perfect and eerily so just after Hurricane Harvey and as Hurricane Irma
landed.

The winds of change were apparent in the many conversations had on this artful weekend. Friends and family loving the convergence of artistic and humanistic diversity is the only highway forward. We are always better together as loving and feeling people. Art has a way of reminding us of the healing natures we all bestow. Let’s mine that energy and harvest that positive flow bringing it with us everywhere we go …TO GROW!


PLEASE take the time to watch Artisan April Dawn Griffin in this brilliant film trailer of the ANCA Naturally Autistic documentary film Connected!

Acceptance Reigns at the 5th Annual Chalk Festival

0418151831b04181518340418151834a

Another incredible, indelible year connecting ACCEPTANCE to the heARTS and minds of all that show up for our annual chalk party. Each year the momentum feels  reinforced, more powerful. The labor of colorful love that has been the AutismHWY.com Chalk Festival has transformed itself year after year. It’s as if our platform was being built in the early year stages. Sponsors, Artists and friends joining together to spread out a foundation for this loving pragmatic platform. A foundation on which to build and connect Autism Acceptance skyscrapers. Autistic people and their loved ones working together to infrastructure positive life force resonation to the community. Real people, real Autism, real Acceptance, real FUN. Amplifying the Autistic voice and connecting to their experience in order for everyone to innerstand Autism.

 

Can you imagine anything more divine?

 

Our Artist’s can. Just have a look….

Building this Acceptance platform has been so much easier than we ever imagined it would be. The collaboration of generous souls that have given their time and energy to support our efforts throughout the years have become the concrete that empower us. Empower and facilitate us as we gel together with this ascending movement. Adding the City of Covina’s embracement to all of that and we have truly built a warm, loving and comfortable day to share in UNITY for all Autistic people and those who truly respect them. A sunny So Cal. day full of FUN, equality, appreciation and the freedom to be Autistic. Quite powerful.

 

It feels like a new day is near, a day where we can all consult our Autistic friends when we need to know how best we can make the population more comfortable and successful. A day when all of society will know that Autism is a normal part of humanity and that Autistic people are highly valued members. We are ALL differently, equally human.

 Subsets of normal swimming with heart in a very colorful and wonderfully diverse ocean of normalcy.

Chalked Over The Moon

 NEXT YEAR’S EVENT will be APRIL, 18TH 2015!

 

 

cf moon

Last Saturday was a day for all time! A day long coming  and warmly embraced by many. A whole new frontier for Autistic safe space! We are planting our flag for Autism Acceptance and FUN. The 4th Annual AutismHWY.com Chalk Art Festival really delivered that and all of the attendees and partners couldn’t be happier! A day dedicated for unconditional love and acceptance. No teams, no battles, no agendas to eradicate Autism. No negative rhetoric about 1 in 68. In fact we believe one in sixty eight is great!IMG_0364

 

Autistic adults, children and their families, friends and supporters all assembled at Heritage Plaza Park in Downtown Covina for a great day of Art, Performance and Friendship. It was a powerful feeling to have so many people on the spectrum together for the celebration. So many friends and family old and new coming together for a fun day in the sun to express how we feel and what we bCF LOGOelieve in. Empowering to say the very least!

Our fantastic hosts this year ; The City of Covina and the Covina Cultural Arts Commission were most hospitable. They have even made me a Cultural Arts Commissioner! WOW!   cf ccaacWe now have a great location that was beautifully mapped out for our special day! Everyone enjoyed the Heritage Plaza Park setting. Booths, Art zones , Drum circle, Performance stage, Chill zone and play area created an all around fantastic atmosphere. Over 600 people came through the event and I believe we would have stayed there all day! No one wanted the day to end! All of us vowing to be back next year for more of the same unconditional acceptance and amazing ART!
