Socially Engaged Art
Leveraging Art to Build Power
As artists and organizers we believe art in both process and product is ideal for breaking the silence on the state and religious violence we face in our communities. Many of us are systematically locked out of the institutions in our community because we are religious and cultural minorities within the South Asian American community. Art then allows us a platform to be seen, resist, strategize, and move our communities toward healing.
With support from the Robert Rauchenberg Foundation we have built one of the first Socially Engaged Artist programs grounded in South Asian religious and cultural minority communities. We work in mulitiple mediums including Film, photography, public performance, song, light signs, drumming, and silk screens.
