Its purpose and intent is to introduce, inform and educate the viewer of some of the most powerful work being created in the social justice arena and to share the issues and the experiences of the artists which shapes, not only their work, but their very lives.
All three are artist/curators have long established their presence in the the art world as leaders of social justice art with the purpose of showcasing and participating in a wide range of visual and performing art that aim to raise critical consciousness, build community, and motivate individuals to promote social change.
