VISION + MISSION
Art Responders are passionate about creating opportunities for cultural engagement as a conduit to social justice. We believe in the power of art to counteract rising threats to civil rights and liberties, and to empower at-risk communities underserved by the current arts establishment.
Our goal is to forge effective and meaningful public arts and education programming using a twofold approach:
We organize grassroots arts events with strong participatory elements-- transformative experiences that document injustice, heal targeted communities, and incite action.
We design educational resources and workshops designed to resist systemic oppression through a marriage of arts, activism, and advocacy within a restorative justice framework.
