For more than 30 years CAN has partnered with communities to share the histories and experiences that are unwritten or unspoken. This work breaks through the silence arising from systemic disempowerment and exposes the politics of fear by sharing, through art, participants’ daily acts of resistance and resilience that are essential to maintaining hope.
The creation of powerful artworks and experiences resonate deeply for the community and with the audiences they reach, far beyond where the work originated.
