The Manifesto

This blog is dedicated to ALL artists in the U.S. and abroad committed to social, environmental  and internal liberation. It's for all the creative visionaries and activists who are ready to be revolutionary. Our eyes have been opened to the injustices and inequalities plaguing our world. We are fed up with the bullshit and each day we make the choice to give back to our communities. Instead of trying to change the world, we choose to create the world anew. Each day we strive to know ourselves, and reimagine our lives.

No matter which artistic soul you embody- whether you're a dancer, writer, designer, artist, filmmaker, musician, photographer, actor, acrobat, b-boy, poet, singer, etc.- more power to you. I raise my pen to your conscious, poetic artistry and revel in your mad skills. Let's create a new world. In the wise words, of the great African American poet and activist, June Jordan, "We are the Ones, We've Been Waiting for."

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go do that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive."

-Howard Thurman
