**Join us for our Second Installment**

RESIST: A SIMULATION OF STRUGGLE

THIS PROJECT is an experiment in liberation art and is the very first project of Resist: Atlanta’s Radical Art Community. A countercultural response to the social and political climate of our time, our artists will reclaim space and create a 60-minute simulation comprised of visual and performance projects and an interactive installation for attendees to navigate with the help of ally tour guides. This project and its ambassadors push back against: Racism, Sexism, Colonialism/Empire, Fascism, Transphobia, Homophobia, Islamophobia, Ableism and Xenophobia.

THIS MOMENT in history demands that we resist systems of oppression and repression attempting to conceal and censor our stories. In reimagining new futures for our marginalized communities, we must reclaim ownership of our narratives. We must exhaust every platform available to us so that the silenced and invisible can finally dictate the terms of engagement.

THIS MOVEMENT is a radical response to the moment and inspired by long held traditions of resistance art. It gives power to the immense potential of art to touch, move, and transport minds and bodies in an effort to connect the dots between the personal and political. It holds the art and the artist accountable to a great responsibility: to regard the audience’s experience as sacred. To spur thinking into spacio-temporal engagement and then into action through the stories they tell. This movement mitigates the numbing effects of information overload and transforms disenchantment into action.

OUR ARTISTS are a group of 13 who feel deeply that art is central to revolutionary work. We are artists committed to creating that which “comforts the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable.” We exert the power of art and the story unapologetically. We wield our voices, our bodies, our minds, our hearts to dance, sing, write, speak, paint, move, shout–that the stories and truths of our people will be made known to all who encounter us. We artists of color, of non-men, of trans, queer, and indigenous identities. We are artists existing across religions and no religion. We are artists from underserved communities and disenfranchised communities. We are immigrants and the children of immigrants. We are loud and and we are filled with righteous rage.
