On the Horizon: Climate Change, Emergence, and the Interconnectedness of All Things
We are living in a time of accelerated environmental devastation. We are experiencing the sixth mass extinction, in the Holocene, or Anthropocene, an era shaped by the destructive effects of human activity. Captialism and natural disasters combine in destruction to create mass displacement and migration, at an unprecedented rate. We are also experiencing a breakdown of social relationships as many countries in the world slip towards nationalism and fascism.
To move towards life in this era of climate change, mass extinction, mass displacement, and social disintegration, we will need to work together in new ways, forming new relationships and structures. adrienne maree brown, in her book Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds, asks that we “practice complexity, and grow a compelling future together through relatively simple interactions. Emergent strategy is how we intentionally change in ways that grow our capacity to embody the just and liberated worlds we long for.” How do we, including plants, mycelia, and non-human animals, practice interdependence and build resilience? How will you visualize both our current challenges, and potential paths forward?
Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative has come together to offer another year of Community Supported Art. Our CSA delivers powerful and inspirational political artworks by Justseeds Artists to your mailbox throughout the year!
Your Community Supported Art subscription will provide you with exclusive new art for every month of 2019 in an edition printed only for subscribers. The money we raise through subscriptions will fund future projects and the work we consistently do tying social and environmental justice issues to graphics and compelling art.
You will also be supporting an organization that is 100% artist run/owned and collectively operated!
CSA members will have three new prints shipped to their house in four installments throughout the year! With each package, you’ll get a statement about prints from the artists, connecting you with the artist’s intention, inspiration, and backstory.
There’s two ways to sign up: Pay in full now, or pay in installments!
(contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on installment payments)
This year’s participating artists are listed below (the list is currently incomplete)! Thank you for believing in what we do!
