The Awakenings Project STL is now Awakened.AF !

What began as a photographic project based in the Midwest, USA, has now become more than a moment.  

Marissa Southards, the artist behind the original project that started in 2016, has moved into a new era as this small project has expanded to include more than just photos.  What began as a series of photos meant to empower the participant has now transformed into a movement inspiring thousands around the globe. 

From motivational speaking, to writings, to collaborations, this little project has now become Awakened.AF ! 

Welcome to a new era in empowerment as we focus on still imagery, the written word, and visual media to support and inspire those who are often looked down upon by our society.

Coming Soon!
