The mission of Interference Archive is to explore the relationship between cultural production and social movements. This work manifests in an open stacks archival collection, publications, a study center, and public programs including as exhibitions, workshops, talks, and screenings, all of which encourage critical and creative engagement with the rich history of social movements.
The archive contains many kinds of objects that are created as part of social movements by the participants themselves: posters, flyers, publications, photographs, books, T-shirts and buttons, moving images, audio recordings, and other materials.
With members working from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. We believe in the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action. To this end, we produce collective portfolios, contribute graphics to grassroots struggles for justice, work collaboratively both in- and outside the co-op, build large sculptural installations in galleries, and wheatpaste on the streets—all while offering each other daily support as allies and friends.
Our foundation is a visual media experiment dedicated to amplifying the voices of grassroots movements through art and community engagement. We do this by funding collaborations between these movements and contemporary artists so that their messages can reach a wider audience. Our goal is to flip artists into activists and observers into participants.
Counter Type is an art collective committed to making strong, bold, and confident protest art available for free. We are committed to helping those who are like minded speak truth to power one download at a time.
Whenever we see something we don’t like there will be more art telling you how we feel. We won’t stop until our voices are heard.
If you share our sentiment, download our art and make something with it. Make your own posters at home. Send them to your local printer and make a bunch to give to friends. Get t-shirts made and wear them proudly. Share on social media using the hashtag #UseYourWords. All we ask is that you do something.
