Active Voice, a project in response to the new administration

Over the next four months, Artists Image Resource (AIR) will present the Active Voice Project, a series of events and workshops that will culminate in a community driven exhibition of artwork in response to the new administration.

Our goal as an organization has always been to provide support for artists, not only in terms of resources but also as a platform for expression and a catalyst for action.

Much has changed over the past months regarding how we understand our collective circumstance and we believe strongly that now is the time for artists and the community to actively voice their concerns about the present and future of this nation.
