“So, what keeps you grounded and hopeful for more radical futures?
We just passed the one-year mark of the COVID-19 pandemic in the US—on top of the ongoing white supremacist violence and climate catastrophe—art can help us manifest a different, more just world. On Wednesday, April 21st, me and my good friend and mentor @lisacongdon, are going to explore the transformative power of art—in its relationship to social movements, or even as a form of self-care—and we’d love for you to join us! We are friends, activists and artists with a soft spot for the work of Forward Together Action @fwdtogether. This past year we’ve had many insightful chats on Zoom and while painting an awesome mural about our work in this moment, and we had an idea: why not share our musings, wonderings and dreams with more people—for a good cause? As a Black transgender and queer artist, and as a queer female artist, our creative expression is not only important but necessary to create the reality we want for our communities.
Join us at Art & Liberation: A Fundraiser for @fwdtogether for a thoughtful conversation as artists and people engaged in the community. We hope you’ll come get the scoop on art as a visual voice for social change. And that you’ll be inspired to support and plug into the work of Forward Together Action as they build power that uplifts the leadership of women of color, nonbinary people of color and Indigenous communities. Let’s dream together about what becomes possible when you use your innate creativity for change and good in the world. Can’t wait to see you on Wednesday, April 21st at 6:30pm PT. There’s a link to purchase tickets in the linktree in my bio above, and tickets are sold on a sliding scale. Also, Lisa and I made this poster together, so fun.”
