Introduction . . . is a forum for writings that address diverse perspectives on art and politics.

Personal anecdotes, contemporary approaches and cross-cultural themes are emphasized but historical and global content is included where relevant.

In confronting the economic and institutional dynamics of a majority-based society—unilaterally suppressing creatives and the arts—this blog serves to document the value of art as a social and political force; generating a wellspring of people and projects in the arts that serve as both an inspiration and an influence, to the needs and realities of our daily lives.

Public entries are welcome. Please keep entries to 1,200 words or fewer and include 1-3 images in .jpg format at no less than 72dpi. People-first language and inclusive content will be favored. Unconventional and non-academic styles are welcome. Email entries to usssartists[at]gmail[dot]com and anticipate a response within one day of your message.
