ART ALONG FAULT LINES
What does collective coping and community resilience look like?
Imagine a web of solidarity made up of individuals, collectives, organizations and institutions who are committed to channeling energy and resources into local communities looking to reconstruct and heal from disasters and other urban traumas.
We believe that facilitating an exchange between local grassroots organizations and artists from around the world can spark opportunities for new affinity groups that reach beyond borders.
OUR THEORY OF PRACTICE
We support projects that:
Address sociocultural and psychological elements that mediate the disaster experience and recovery.
Create opportunities for risk reduction (including risk awareness and risk preparedness) and reconstruction of sense of place and collective identity.
Channel resources into local grassroots activities and movements. Uplift local knowledge.
Emphasize people’s access to material, social and political resources.
Be in continual process through a long-term engagement with communities.
