2020 Create Change: Practicing Abundance
…we are each other’s harvest:
we are each other’s business:
we are each other’s magnitude and bond.
– Gwendolyn Brooks
The Laundromat Project commits to practicing abundance as a pathway to imagine more for ourselves and our communities. Claiming abundance is a personal and political commitment, especially for communities of color in this historical moment. From a place of self-determination and care, the Create Change program is an invitation to show up as each other’s harvest, business, magnitude and bond.
As a leading organizational theme of the 2020 program, we will collectively explore: What does it mean to make art and build community with abundance as a foundation? What does change look like if we are all invested in the advancement of POC artists and communities? How can we cultivate the resources, knowledge, and relationships needed for our communities to thrive? In other words, we believe creative visions, ideas, and actions can fuel new ways of making positive change in the world.
We are looking for artists, cultural producers, and makers of all creative disciplines, backgrounds, and experiences to practice abundance through the co-creation of community-based art projects across NYC.
