We Rise is collaboration, a collective of voices, a cross-pollination of communities...
We are collaborators seeking to create socially conscious work that inspires collective liberation.
We Rise are cultural producers who embody solidarity, theory in the flesh & aspire to heartfelt, prayerful offerings to the freedom movement of our time.
In order to Rise, we must know where we stand, where we come from.
This show is a tribute to our ancestors, our foremothers and fathers, the souls who’ve given us life, who’ve shaped our movements, those known and unknown. While we offer gratitude to individuals, we know our movements are not built upon singular great leaders, they are built by the many, uniting despite the divide and conquer status quo.
We honor those who have come before us in struggle and in resilience. Their words, manifestos of promise, dedication, fortitude, and humility, breathe life into our movements.
