For Urban Bush Women's 16th SLI themed You, Me, We: Understanding Internalized Racial Oppression and How it Manifests in Our Artistic Community, we will be examining Internalized Racial Oppression and how its manifestations show up in our organizing, creations and collaborations.
- Do we find ourselves striving for pre-defined ideas of beauty and excellence?
- Does our work challenge or recreate dominant frameworks and systems of policing that ignore history, culture, power and lineage?
- How can we explode predetermined expectations, restore our full humanity, and activate our true strength?
Application opens February 5!
