Art for Ourselves is a self-organized publication and resource created by and for QTBIPOC artists, activists, and cultural workers who are creating Art for Ourselves. Our definition of art is expansive. Creating Art for Ourselves means creating our lives in the context we’re in and having the courage to manifest a future in which we are all allowed to thrive. We are dedicated to the liberation and prosperity of QTBIPOC creative individuals and communities at every intersection and strive to center, share, and celebrate the stories and voices most often erased from mainstream narratives. In doing so, we validate and humanize our own experience(s), facilitate a deeper understanding of how intersecting oppression manifests in our lives, and actualize our power towards liberation from the capitalist white supremacist cis-heteropatriarchy.
