My name is Meanz Chan (陳 明 敏)(she/her/hers), pronounced like "Mints" and I'm a Chinese American (1st gen of refugees) freelance multimedia artist based out of Iowa. Through my work, I explore isolation, nostalgia, identity and representation. My purpose in life is to make art and I've found that this purpose feeds into many other facets of what I would like to do with my life. 

Here is what I am looking for support on:

WOC (Women of Color) Iowa is a photojournalistic series that focuses on conversations surrounding identity with WOC with ties to Iowa. I think it's important to uplift, share stories from WOC and hopefully to create connections and to show that we are not alone in our feelings. This series started as an exploration into Asian American identity but has expanded so far beyond that into so many other cultures. These conversations last anywhere from 1 hour to 8 hours depending on how deep we go, and I have learned so much from everyone. I'd like to eventually turn this into a book, possibly a podcast and a website specifically for this project.

POC (People of Color) Iowa is a social media series used to highlight and show POC representation in Iowa. The hope is to bridge communities and show how colorful Iowa really is and to show support for the minorities in our communities. I'd really like to create a website and possible directory from this.

My personal art. I've been drawing since I can remember, and I've always known I wanted to be an artist, I'm lucky enough to be able to do this, but I require a lot of tools to keep myself going that are not free, such as: cost of materials, software, tools, etc.

It's taken me a long time for me to ask for help, and I'd really appreciate any contribution for any of my projects. As of right now I am donating my time and resources out of pocket for my passion projects, and I'd like to continue them for the forseeable future, but I could use some help!
