Uten Lama + Brittany Hernandez Highly Commended

Digital & Technology


With the stigma surrounding mental health, many people are afraid to reach out to their loved ones and/or a professional.

Due to the stigma, they instead use art as an outlet to release their emotions and inner conflicts. Although beneficial and needed, not everyone has access to the right resources and supplies necessary.

In order to help, Uten and Brittany created Artspoken: an app where users can explore fine art, dance & music. With the intent of creating, sharing, and learning, Artspoken works to ensure that those who are suffering from mental health issues are not alone.
