Set on Freedom Artist Retreat – Due May 21, 2016
We are coming together as women, gender non-conforming, trans, queer, multi-media artists of color to hold space, learn, acknowledge and celebrate the radical systems that we create in our struggle for survival and quest for artistic freedom. We are gathering to share knowledge by centering ourselves as each other’s resources, while challenging the institutional pull to assimilate in order to gain access to systems that are not made for us. The SET ON FREEDOM retreat will bring a cohort of individuals together to share their practices, connect and care for each other. We are envisioning a space where we can uplift each other, rejoice in our collective brilliance and have fun. We are artists set on freedom and we want you to join us in this collective journey!
