migration is beautiful!

Voice of Art is putting together a series of videos about the importance of art for driving social justice action. In this video, Favianna Rodriguez discusses her artwork in behalf of those workers and families without visas being persecuted by government and media (see related parts two and three). Provocative work by other artists is also available at VOA site.

Favianna is also founder of CultureStr/ke, an initiative " produce visual, written, video and other works to educate the public about the devastating effects of our nation’s policies toward immigrants, while mobilizing communities to fight discriminatory immigration laws nationwide." Voice of Art and Favianna's work was brought to my attention in this CultureStr/ke article.
