UNIT 1A – Plan
My work always focuses on bringing communities together, platforming Black and Brown artists and highlighting the injustices in the care system. But I see so many people like me disproportionately abused ignored and overlooked because of the colour of their skin or the lived experiences they’ve had.
I’m angry and tired and want to cause havoc and anarchy through art. I want to make it easier for people like me. Most importantly I don’t want anyone to feel as lonely as I did. I decided that Trauma is Power and power makes Change and want to explore that.
