Manifest: Justice - Art for Social Change

"...When artists and activists come together, when creativity is employed as a tool, real solutions emerge."

" In May 2015, in partnership with our colleagues at California Endowment through their Sons and Brothers campaign, we co-convened a 10-day “pop-up” art and cultural exhibit called MANIFEST:JUSTICE in south Los Angeles. Produced by Taskforce, MANIFEST:JUSTICE is a creative community exhibition that elevates and illuminates the ongoing conversation about race, mass incarceration, police accountability, racial profiling, healthy communities and gun violence. The themes of MANIFEST:JUSTICE are justice, human rights, power and dignity for all. We believe it is imperative that the creative community has a seat at the table. Artists are uniquely trusted to challenge the norm, to imagine the potential and to inspire radical dreaming. Creativity is the touchstone for innovation and change. When artists and activists come together, when creativity is employed as a tool, real solutions emerge." ~ Amnesty International
