Our communities need visionary solutions, and artists will lead the way. In this session, we’ll explore how artists and organizers produce transformative work through collaborative, not transactional, relationships. Using stories from the Trans Day of Resilience art project, Echoing Ida writing program, and more, we’ll share how to center the radical imaginations of culture workers. Participants will leave with tried and true principles designed to shift culture and fuel any movement.
