The Visual Resistance (TVR) is a superforce of creative activists united to resist oppression and imagine a liberated future. We are excited to be working in a rapidly expanding field with many contributors, collectives, and individuals working with similar determination. As such, we are inviting all the Resistance family, especially those using visuals/media/images/film/etc. to April’s forum, so we can learn about each other's work and get a better sense of our intersections, discovering ways to join forces, share resources, and grow stronger together.
This will be the third forum and the theme is Calling All Collectives. The forum will include brief presentations by several collectives including, #ArtsGoBK, BRIC, Chinatown and Lower East Side Artists Against Displacement, The Creative Resistance, the Diverse Filmmakers Alliance, Desis Rising Up & Moving (DRUM) - Moving Arts, For Freedoms, Hands Off Our Revolution, Hunter Community Action Coalition, The Illuminator, Kingsbridge Project, Love City Arts Collective, Occupy Museums, Resistance Media Collective, TVR-Imagine Liberation team, TVR-News, Wendy's Subway, Word Up Books, along with many others. There will also be breakout discussions and the evening will close with a few short readings.
