Prosperity is not an ideal. It is a real possibility. And prosperity, for us, comes with an even deeper commitment to the kind of art-making that walks us through our pain, through the threshold and back to love.
We are born, because you need us to be born. Because our communities need us in order to survive. Because we are the warriors that bridge destructive divides reified by systemic oppression, because we embody spaces of integration and convergence -- because we live and struggle and fight in those spaces day in and day out, where many seemingly opposing factors meet.
