About

Eunoia Collective, founded by Victoria Michael; a South African author and social entrepreneur, is born out of a passion for art, an awareness of its ability to heal, a love for children, and an essential need to ease the pain caused by their adversity.  

 

Eunoia means to think beautifully. Our mission is to utilize art, mindfulness and creative means to ease suffering. Whether a child or adolescent, affected by trauma or simply needing to nurture their mental wellness, Eunoia seeks to inspire passion, cultivate hope, and connect people through art.

 

Brimming with enthusiasm, energy and clear vision, Michael is supported by an influential board of directors and advisors, experts in their relative fields; health practitioners, successful entrepreneurs, and leaders spearheading social and economic change through for-profit and nonprofit entities.
