Our first mixer of 2020 will focus on the the different types of censorship that impede the creation, access and visibility of public resistance art. Art which addresses social issues and both inspire and inform social change, more often than not, motivates censorship stemming from political and economic interests.

Activists/Artists and members of the community are invited to this conversation– facilitated by ATL Radical Art Director, Rozina Shiraz Gilani– and collectively imagine ways that we might confront local art censorship, seek inspiration by artists around the world and uplift voices for change.

ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY:

ATL Radical Art is a collective of local Atlanta artists committed to the creation of a radical and artistic counterculture in response to the social and political climate of our time. Our Artists engage in performances/experiments that shed light on topics of intersectional struggle, liberation and protest from around the globe. Our vision is to create create spaces and works that thrive independent of institutional funding, finding its strength in community support. This community is primarily for people of color, non-men, queer & trans artists across multiple disciplines as well as accomplices who are working jointly with us towards similar goals and prioritize the visibility of said communities in Atlanta’s art scene.
