Our friends at The Laundromat Project — which connects artists and artwork with community members in order to solve problems and build community networks — are calling for creative responses in connection with the Black Lives Matter movement. Please consider making a submission:
“Today marks the 1-year anniversary of the death of Sandra Bland. We are heavy-hearted that two years later we find ourselves once again trying to make sense of the gross disregard and disrespect for life in the killings of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and the loss of the hundreds of lives of other people of color at the hands of those meant to protect them.
. . .
We invite you to share your creative responses to this moment–drawings, poems, dance, films, songs, etc–as well as your readings, curricula, self care tips, and more with The LP community, by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Information can be shared in all formats (images, links, videos, pdfs, etc.). We will share responses on The LP’s Black Lives Matter webpage, started in 2014. We will also share tips on self-care, educational resources, and details regarding actions and interventions on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. You can also find information by following us @laundromatproject (Twitter) and @laundromat_proj (Instagram).”
