Since its inception in 2016, For Freedoms has worked to center artists’ voices in public discourse, broaden what participation in democracy looks like, and initiate a larger conversation about the role of art in local, national, and global politics. For Freedoms believes that if creativity is a core societal value, new ideas are more likely to take hold, and systems built on the shaky foundation of domination, extraction, and corruption of power can be rebuilt on the bedrock of love, care, and community. In just five years, the For Freedoms network has grown to become the largest community of creative civic engagement in the United States, including thousands of artists and organizations working together to invite radical imagination and set the table for new national conversations.
In this conversation with ArtsWestchester Exhibitions Manager Adam Chau, FF team member Jun Mabuchi will discuss the history of For Freedoms, will contextualize the collective’s work within the history of artist collectives in the United States, and will share thoughts on what an artist-driven society could look like and how we might get there. Q&A with the audience will follow the program.
