Art, politics & playing in both spaces to make positive change in our culture.

Favianna takes us on a tour of political history through art and culture, and how to take action in our communities. We are given insight into cultural shifts and the effects of changing the narratives as a starting point to changing policies.

About the speaker

Favianna Rodriguez is a transnational interdisciplinary artist and cultural organizer on a mission to create profound and lasting social change in the world. Her art and collaborative projects address migration, global politics, economic injustice, patriarchy, and interdependence. Favianna’s practice is grounded in the desire to humanize and empower communities who are impacted by inequality and racism. She spends time on the front lines with affected communities, researching policies and supporting fellow artists of color and migrants through resources, mentorship, and collaborative opportunities. Born and raised in Oakland, California, Favianna’s earliest mentors were artists and movement leaders in the Chicano and Black Arts Movement. When Favianna is not making art, she is directing CultureStrike, a national arts organization that engages artists, writers and performers in migrant rights.
