What is the role of artists, healers, and artists as healers during a crisis such as COVID-19? A People’s WPA is a cultural organizing and storytelling project by the US Department of Arts and Culture that seeks to uplift essential forms of labor in an effort to build an inspiring vision of our shared future. This conversation brings together artists and healers from backgrounds such as mutual aid, birth-work, anti-incarceration, and somatic embodiment, to consider how we can support and scale the work of artists and healers embedded in our communities. Featuring Jackie Sumell (The Prisoner’s Apothecary), Auntie Sewing Squad, Ana Rodney, and Taja Lindley.
This program is presented by 18th Street Arts Center in partnership with WE RISE 2022.
