This is a digital reproduction of an original illustration I did using graphite and watercolor pencils. Printed on crisp, firm 100 lb card stock measuring approximately 11" x 14". All prints are packaged with a clear plastic sheath and a thick mat board backing for protection.
This is an image from the project for the 2021 Calendar: Practicing a World Beyond White Supremacy Culture
I created the artwork for this calendar with the intention to explore and practice antidotes that Tema Okun writes about in “Characteristics of White Supremacy Culture”
Each month corresponds to a characteristic I wish to interrupt and unlearn inside myself and I am inviting you to explore and practice this work with me.
Unlearning power hoarding.
There is enough power when it is used with people instead of over people. What kinds of energy feel like renewable resources to you? Love? belonging? Move towards those. Deepak Chopra says, “What you pay attention to grows”. What do you want to grow? Who do you want to build with? Build alongside? Our current systems grant some folks power and not others. Are any of your current circumstances in the way of others accessing their power? Who do you consider a guide or an inspiration? You can look to these people or groups as a compass and position yourself so you are able to boost their goals and they are able to boost yours. More power is activated when it is shared and strategic.
