Ongoing Arts & Culture Projects
Movement for Black Lives Quilt – designed by AgitArte and created by Brooklyn Quilt Girl, Sylvia Hernández
When We Fight, We Win! Artkit – Our Artkit aims to engage communities in the power of artmaking! In the spirit of Boston’s anti-eviction fight slogan, “When We Fight, We Win!” (that which inspired the title for our book), the artkit is rooted in the 7 organizing principles for systemic change (as seen on the book) and includes effective practices for making stencils, banners, reproducible posters, paper masks, and signage for actions, marches and events!
End the Debt! Decolonize! Liberate! Movement Unity Scroll – a participatory art object that tells the story of U.S. imperialism through the lens of the current economic and environmental state of Puerto Rico and its diaspora. This project will be developed in collaboration with People’s Collective Arts and facilitated by Rachel Schragis and AgitArte. More info here.
