I have been leading fabric banner making workshops for the Women's March and other actions to unite our collective energies to resist the current political regime that undermines the rights and humanity of so many. The intergenerational, interracial, multigendered, intersectional beauty and power of the Women's Marches across the globe have inspired me to reproduce large scale color images of the signs and banners made by everyday people and collaborate with a local art organization to wheat paste a mural to put on the facade of a large building so that our collective resistance can be made visible all day, every day for at least the first 100 days of Trump in office. I am also working with participants in the banner making workshops to rig them so that they can double as window curtains to face out on to our neighborhood streets, so that communities can feel unified in our efforts to support one another, to bolster our spirits and know that we are not alone, that we will not be swallowed by this wave of hate, but that we can build bridges and come together with love as a unifying force.
I currently have proposals in to Kala as well as 100 Days of Action to determine the best site for this project.
