Our Mission, Vision, and ValuesEdit
The following mission, vision and values statements were generated as part of a formal Strategic Planning process facilitated by Wayfinding Partners in early 2021. You can read more about that process on our website: https://artandfeminism.org/initiatives/current-initiatives/strategic-planning/. Our original values statement can be accessed here 2019 Art+Feminism Statement of Values.
Art+Feminism builds a community of activists that is committed to closing information gaps related to gender, feminism, and the arts, beginning with Wikipedia.
Art+Feminism envisions an internet that reflects diverse global histories of art-making, where communities who have most often been written out of history feel welcome and empowered to participate in writing (and righting) our stories
- We believe in the power of the arts. We believe that art is fundamental to flourishing, open societies.
- We are a community of many feminisms. We believe in their collective power to challenge oppressive structures and create new, liberating ones.
- We create safer and braver spaces that are caring, equitable, pro-Black, queer and trans-affirming, intentional about accessibility and all-around anti-oppressive. We find joy in our community, knowing it will sustain us in our work.
- We commit to knowledge sharing and creation on a global scale, highlighting voices and stories which are often unheard. We also embrace our own learning and unlearning of knowledge so that we may dream of new ways of being and doing, individually and collectively.
