a manifesto, a living document, forever a rough draft
I propose tears as revolution. Caring as protest. Empathy as justice.
I will expose humanity with great tenderness. I acknowledge vulnerability as an act of resistance. It is my battle cry, my weapon and my salve.
I exert no energy towards silencing or oppressive forms of social etiquette.
I will not dilute myself for approval.
I reject fear as motivation, I propose generosity and trust in it’s place.
I believe scarcity is a tool of oppressors, used to control by instilling fear. Driving us from one another, fists clutched tightly.
I believe in community, collaboration and a generous exchange of knowledge.
I believe art should be accessible, touchable, and should exist outside of galleries whenever possible.
