In times of uncertainty, art is more than beauty. It is both a weapon and a shield in the battle for our identity, our dignity, and our safety. Art has the power to wake people up in ways other mediums cannot, and can serve as a catalyst for meaningful change.
Art and activism is a lifestyle. It requires the ability to be comfortable being uncomfortable, to maintain a constant hustle, and an intimate and vulnerable dedication to work.
Activist art should be free.
