with Beth Pickens
Artists are essential in resisting and dismantling fascism. Throughout history and through the present, you instigate, question, provoke; you provide humor, creative impulse, reflection, serenity, validation. In light of our country’s political swing toward white supremacy and hate, artists need the emotional, financial, physical, and spiritual support to sustain their work. You are invited to show up, listen, and share: support, resources, community-building, information, methods to enter movements, and ways to sustain both your activism and your practice. You will receive a free pamphlet with tips and self-assessment tools for continuing your practice during this administration. Bring a notebook and something to write with!
Please note the workshop will be filmed for possible inclusion in a documentary about artists working in our current political climate.
