CultureStrike is committed to transforming society through art and culture so that we can all live in a more just world. These upcoming years will be very challenging - whether it's climate change, women's rights, immigrant detention, racial justice work, LGBQ rights, TGN (Trans and gender non conforming), and disability justice. We know that our communities will need art and culture to create a safer and more inclusive society. 

Invest in our unique cultural strategy with a tax-deductible donation today.  Or better yet, become a monthly sustainer to show your support all year long!

Your donation will help us commission new pieces of work, expand our mobile studio, develop curriculums, and venture into artistic disciplines that we have yet to tap into (such as theater and performance art, film, etc.). Support social change artists today.

Any amount will help us greatly!

We are offering a special gift for your donation in these three tiers below:

 

1. $50 donation

Supporters who make a one-time contribution of $50 will receive our flagship "Migration Is Beautiful" 18"x24" full color poster, designed by renown Oakland artist Favianna Rodriguez. This iconic piece, originally developed in 2012, has served as a platform to combat negative narratives directed at migrants from around the world. It has served to remind us all that migrants are courageous beautiful people and they must be revered and honored as such. 

2. $250 donation

Originally hand-painted by muralist Jess X Chen for our "Until We Are All Free" project, donors who support us with a one-time donation of $250 will receive an 18"x24" giclée print of this breathtaking piece. Printed on 100% cotton, acid-and-lignin-free paper, the vibrant colors and the dreamy detail of this magnificent piece will have you looking within as you lose yourself amidst the various blue hues and yearn to fly over all borders, free as a colibri.

3. $500 donation

Entitled "Love and Dignity: Beyond Bars and Borders," this masterpiece was created by Favianna Rodriguez for the "Manifest Justice" art exhibit in June, 2015. The original canvas features a beautiful collage of stunning multicolored cutouts layered with a woodblock print for a piece that measures 4 feet by 8.5 feet, making it one of Favianna's largest and most ambitious pieces to date. For the first time ever, we offer a high-quality 18"x31" giclée print of this spectacular composition to all supporters who make a one-time donation of $500. This print is currently unavailable for purchase.

A Message from CultureStrike Director Favianna Rodriguez

“Art has personally transformed me and given me a voice. I have been fortunate to meet many other artists who wish to build a better world through their creative practice. I have always believed that art can shape politics in a way that no other medium can: it has the ability to change hearts, shape our laws, and speak truth to power. I hope you'll join CultureStrike in supporting artists and building shared strategy with social movements.” Donate Now!
