Program Full-Description

We are living in a time in which we are experiencing the harvest of white supremacy culture. Our communities are experiencing climate disasters of increasing severity, profit margins are created off of the well-being of workers during a global pandemic, and it is clear that we need to plant new seeds so that we can reap a different harvest. At PeoplesHub, we center our work in the 4 R’s, Resilience, Resistance, and Re-imagination, that we believe makes movements and our communities healthy. Culture is a vital component of all of those. How can we use art and culture to transform our communities and uproot cultures of supremacy? Cultural organizing is the strategic use of art and culture to shift policies and practices with marginalized communities and views art and culture as vital to collective liberation.

This program is ideal for:

Artists, cultural workers, and organizers who work with artists


Participants will leave with:

  • A working knowledge of Cultural organizing
  • Ways art and culture can be utilized for collective liberation
  • The Values of Cultural Organizing
  • A Drafted Cultural Organizing Campaign Strategy Chart specific to their own community

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
