RPM Rolls On With The Center for Cultural Power
Posted by rpm
RPM is excited to announce our new home at the The Center for Cultural Power, whose mission is to support artists in igniting change at the intersection of culture and social justice.
If ever there were a time to bring art to the people, it’s now. As a creative community, we are mourning the loss of family and friends, witnessing the horrific consequences of racism and inequality, and grappling with the loss of our ability to sustain ourselves and the loss of our cultural spaces. Together, we can move through these times of hardship, comfort and fire up audiences, and sow ideas for an equitable future. We recognize that now it’s critical to unite forces as artists to design and imagine the future of our creative practices.
Watch below to see Erin Potts and Favianna Rodriguez discuss the exciting news:
We artists can transform our world at this unprecedented moment. We bring our creative power to help people imagine what a just world can look, sound, and feel like. Through this new partnership, Cultural Power will expand their artist network and create space for artists of all mediums to build undeniable cultural power.
