From CultureStrike:
CultureStrike’s approach grows out of a deep history of artistic leadership within and alongside social movements. As a network led by migrant artists — and driven by our experiences as women, people of color, queer, trans, working-class, and undocumented people — CultureStrike aims not only to change the art of politics, but also the politics of art-making.

Popular education is an excellent way for cultural workers to exercise our minds as well as our talents, and can help us advance our own art practices and the movements we’re a part of. Below are some articles and reports that have helped CultureStrike develop our vision, and we hope will inspire you as well.
