Part of Open Houses, Week 2: July 13-17.
We creatives are the true intersection of art and activism. Not only is our art progressive and pushing the boundaries of what’s accepted, our mere presence is radical. Showing up to work with Black and Brown bodies, unique gender identities, and the experiences of living a life of oppression is radical and revolutionary in and of itself. This series seeks to give a platform to those who deserve it, especially in this time of reimagining and evolution.
