This is a republish for the 100 Days of Action, the Equity Collective would like to apologize for incorrect information on the 100 Days Action. Please see the full information below.
100 Days Action is a counternarrative to the Trump administration’s one hundred day plan. A calendar of activist and artistic strategy, 100 Days Action is a call to thinkers, artists, and writers to propose gestures that can be carried out either at home or in the world. Whereas the president’s 100 Days will seek to dismantle restrictions that protect our environment, public education, health, and jeopardize unprotected minority groups, 100 Days Action is a forum for resistance, an artistic coming together, an exercise in endurance, a call to all bodies that stand against bigotry, xenophobia, racism, sexism, and the destruction of our environment to act together.
The artists co-leading 100 DaysAction are Jeremiah Barber, Laura C, Ingrid R, Alicia Escott, Carolyn Janssen, Ben Leon, Ken Lo, Katina Papson Rigby, Surabhi Saraf, Julie Sutherland, and Maysoun Wazwaz. These inspirational individuals participated in 152 acts of creative resistance, 14 poems and 3 chapbooks. Hundreds of Bay Area artists and art lovers participated alongside of the visionaries.
Art brings us together. In this episode, members of Bay Area art collectives discuss what it means to make work for, by and with their communities. They reflect on the power of art to heal, inspire, and break down systems of oppression.
Artists featured in this episode: 100 Days Action, Club Chai, Russell E.L. Butler.
