SAMASAMAxSCL July Art Series: Diaspora People's Month
Time & Location
About the Event
July has always been associated with independence and freedom in America, but since America fails to live up to its stated ideals and continues to oppress people of color, we have decided to reclaim July and celebrate diversity and the fight for freedom against white supremacy.
SAMASAMAxThe Sustainable Culture Lab will provide artists with the platform to share their work, speak their truth, and redefine America during this revolutionary time. Each week, we will showcase multiple artists and have discussions on various topics such as politics and diaspora culture. Attendees will be able to ask the artists questions, learn more about their practice, and of course, buy their art.
100% of the art purchases will go to the artist and a percentage of any donations you make to SAMASAMAxThe Sustainable Culture Lab will go to Movement for Black Lives, a network of more than 100 organizations focusing on civil rights and criminal justice reform, and DC Mutual Aid, a hyper-local and grassroots organization providing food, housing, and healthcare for people around the city, through ActBlue. We invite attendees to monetarily gift whatever they can before, during, or after the event to @barrettpitner (Venmo) to support SAMASAMAxThe Sustainable Culture Lab. We appreciate you for supporting this collective work!
