This Month: Liberation Aesthetics with Charlotte Ballard and Holum Press

What would it look like to center liberation in our creative practice? How do we see through the mirages of capitalism? How can writing be used to untangle our environment and see systems more clearly? How can we redefine ourselves through reflection and community action? How do we mine our inner lives and resources in order to survive?
