Statewide Art Intervention

"Funding to art in the state has been cut not because of its excess but because of its power"

I initiated two performance interventions and coordinated a statewide call to action in response to Governor Dunleavy of Alaska’s proposed elimination of the Alaska State Council on the Arts.

Although we were unable to halt the dismantling of the agency by joining forces with others we were able to amplify our voices and let it be known we are not subject to erasure.

I am so grateful to the artists who worked with me to make this happen and to be a member of a phenomenal creative community.
