Can joy in fact be the most powerful form of resistance? Beautiful, collaborative, and joy-filled sums up our recent experience collaborating on a Radical Imagination for Racial Justice prototype with some of the most incredible women across the country for Surdna Foundation. We're dismantling + reconstructing the narratives around the human relationship with land, bodies, human rights, race, place, art, justice, joy, and arriving, in our own work, and now for the first time thanks to #surdnafoundation, together. And in a time of chaos, we can resist fear with joy and love .
When different minds come together to share space and perspective, it's true magic. Such an honor to work with so many queens: Jaclyn Roessel, Navajo Nation Writer and Cultural Justice + Equity Consultant (@grownupnavajo + @jacroessel); Susana Arellano, Mexico City + NYC-based Transdisciplinary Designer (@agenda_28); Gabrielle Chapman, WV + Atlanta-based Racial Equity Organizer + Strategist (@affrilachiaspeaks); Taneisha Duggan Hartford, CT-based Director, Producer, Actor (@livingenough); Varsha Kayi LA + DC-based Immigration + Asylum Attorney (@vkayi); Mei Lum, Chinatown NY-Community Organizer, Culture Bearer, + third-generation owner of @wingonwoandco (@meilum); Eva Cruz Brooklyn-based A Photographer + Cinematographer (@crouchingtigerllc) (also pictured Megan Bullock and Liz Turner, MESH collaborators :)
The more we work together, the higher we rise. #womenshistorymonth #strongertogether
