Artists’ Liberation

I’m delighted and excited to take on the role of International Liberation Reference Person for Visual Artists, and build on John Fehringer’s efforts. [John Fehringer was the previous International Liberation Reference Person for Visual Artists.]

Shortly after I started Co-Counseling, in my twenties, I decided to get back to making art. Since then I have made it a priority in my life. I’ve appreciated getting to think about and lead artists within the RC Communities over the years. I love artists’ liberation work and how it is connected to reclaiming our full voice and our overall re-emergence.

As artists, we have been at the forefront of innovation, invention, and revolutions. We have fought to show our minds, what is true, and what is possible. I look forward to all we get to do with one another, including discharging on early defeats and the ways we’ve been divided from one another and the rest of the working class.

Art and artists are integral to a thriving and human society. As artists we get to reach for connection with everyone, continue to be bold, take risks, stand with others to end every oppression, and make art that reveals the strengths of our experiences, cultures, and liberation struggles. I look forward to knowing more of you and continuing to build a collective effort to move artists’ liberation forward.
