I have cried twice today over the news. I only just got up.
Once over the shocking death of a beautiful strong black man at the hands of US police and then over the stories of abused women after a 900% rise in access to refuge websites.
Following my meeting yesterday with colleagues at Future's Venture I sense a tide of great change in my work. They have given me a confidence to speak my mind. A need to accept my life as it has been and work towards a future for all of us that is better.
I need to make aggressive, noisy art. I need to commit to my anger and become more active in the movement for changes in the persecution of peoples.
The time has come to change.
