PROTEST ART

Creating Community Support and Social Awareness Through Art

Members of the Sonoma County community, we know that many of us are feeling devastated, enraged and helpless about the murder of George Floyd and the ongoing lack of justice in the Country. We want to use our voices and rise up in protest.

We believe that there is no "right" way to protest. As a group of artist, we were inspired to create a form of protest that felt organic and authentic to us. The definition of "Art" is to hold a mirror up to humanity. Art is a reflection of society. Which means Art is often controversial. 

 

We acknowledge and appreciate that there are many ways to protest. We would like to invite you to participate in our way of taking action through art.

 

Join us in our peaceful protest portrait photography  project, lead by the incredible Black artist: Marcus Ward & FTA Productions in support for the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Everyone is Welcome!

FTA Productions would like to invite you to join us in our portrait collage project. We will be taking individual portraits of masked protesters, which will then be turned into a large mosaic collage in support of this movement. There will also be other filmed portions.

We will use the power of the collective to create a piece of art of protest, while also following social distancing guidelines.
