What do all creatives have in common?
Maybe it is the fear of never being good enough.
In a year marked by suicides in the creative community, we sent crown-building tool boxes to the most creative heads in Miami.
The goal was to address self-doubt and invite guests to crown themselves the kings and queens of how far they have come. Five artists showcased their interpretation of a coronation in spoken word, short films, music, and performance art.
"As a very shy person I often struggle to initiate conversations.
The Coronation made everyone go through the same process and
that made me feel at ease because
every crown was its own
"What I wear is directly related to
my personality. The colors,
materials, and styles are all ways to express myself and building my
own crown was definitely a
highlight in my search of who I am still becoming."
"You lose so much time and energy doubting yourself and your work.
Going to The Coronation meant leaving your insecurities and self doubt bullsh*t at home, 'cause they’re not invited."
“In a digital era where everything happens trough a screen, The Coronation was a breath of fresh air! It made me reconnect with my childhood and the reasons on why I love what I do.”
"As a creative you have periods where you have a mental block or even feel like you lost the ability to create. The Coronation brought together unique stories behind each crown, reminding us that struggle is a part of creation."

"My crown was inspired by the way our eyes are always on others and how they seem to be doing better than you. Making it was a way of dealing with this in a funny way."
