Remove The Label: Why Artists are Challenging Diversity and Inclusion Trends

Recently, I was approached by Mariah Phillips, of &INCLUSION to discuss a topic that’s important to me. For this piece, I chose to talk about identity politics within the art world.

&INCLUSION (and-inclusion), founded by Mariah Phillips in September 2018, is a career news and resource blog crafted to assist, mold and magnify voices, stories and skill-sets of people of color. This blog exists not only to encourage diversity, but to make acceptance and inclusion of all cultures–across professions, industries and creative spaces — normal. With intent to revolutionize the delivery of minority perspectives in professional spaces, &INCLUSION prioritizes transparency, excellence and esteem for original thought.

Although very new, the initiative is amazing and I applaud Mariah for taking the time to create this resource! I’m thankful she asked me to write a piece for the blog, and I look forward to seeing her platform expand!
