10 YEARS of CULTURE PUSH
What have we done (for you) lately? ooo ooo ooo yeah.

PUSH/Pull, ISSUE 7: NOW AVAILABLE
Guest Editor and Associated Artist Christina Freeman expands on Ultraviolet Archive, her investigation on the ways that artistic freedom is limited through censorship conducting a series of interviews with experts to further understand limitations to artistic freedom in the United States. In this issue she spoke with three experts, offering three very different perspectives: Srirak Plipat (Executive Director of Freemuse), Svetlana Mintcheva (Director of Programs at the National Coalition Against Censorship), and Dread Scott (an artist whose works have faced content-related censorship).
Issue seven is our first print edition of PUSH/PULL and if you would like a copy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request!

is an experimental platform to cultivate critical improvisation: tactics for self-articulation and collective engagement as we demand a more just society. Less a formal education program and more a container for collective study, this first iteration of the project is open-ended and speculative, connecting music, movement, struggle, assembly and transcendence.
Trans Family Archive revolves around a series of roundtable discussions designed to increase the contact and communication between generations of trans and non-binary individuals.
