Art For Reparations (A4R) is a project of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, an organization of white people created by the African People’s Socialist Party which organizes in the white community for reparations to African people. A4R raises material resources to African people and offers white artists the opportunity to take responsibility for the parasitism of the gentrifying, colonial-capitalist art institutions and music industry that we benefit from by allowing us to use our creativity to forward the African revolution, building towards a socialist economy lead by the African People's Socialist Party.
All people are welcome to submit work across all mediums. We encourage new work that is inspired by revolution, resistance, discipline, organization, anti-colonial struggle; also beautiful, fun, poetic, well-made and showing your highest craftsmanship as an artist. We live in the crisis of imperialism where capitalism is dying at the hands of anti-colonial resistance around the world. It is a powerful stance as an artist to make something during this era of crisis, with a calm head knowing that our art is going to directly benefit working-class African people who are building for self-determination around the world, to build a world in which nobody is oppressed.
Open to submissions of traditional art that can be framed, as well as custom creative services such as a tattoo design, mural painting, architect consultation, portrait painting, hair cut & style, graphic design work, music lessons or any unique service you would like to be made available as part of this benefit auction. We are open to your ideas, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a curated exhibition. All submissions will be contacted within 2 weeks to be notified if your work has been accepted. We will provide a drop-off location in Boston if you are local, or a mailing address if you are anywhere else. We encourage submissions from all over the world! Artists are responsible to safely transport/ ship their work as soon as possible. Accepted artists will receive a free ticket to the event. THANKS & UHURU! REPARATIONS NOW!!
