+ ARLEENE CORREA VALENCIA
SOMOS VISIBLES, Arleene Correa Valencia + Ana Teresa Fernández' collaborative ongoing project, takes a political stance on visibility through the use of high visibility ready-to-wear safety gear present throughout many labor industries, and as it relates to the invisibility of the undocumented in the U.S.—and within COME TO YOUR CENSUS campaign, as it relates to being seen and counted in the 2020 Census. Read more about SOMOS VISIBLES—made possible through the generous support of Levi's—and the artists' work here.
SUPPORT THE ART+ACTION COALITION'S
2020 COME TO YOUR CENSUS CAMPAIGN
Art+Action—a coalition for civic participation that spans art, creative, community, business, technology, philanthropy, activist, and government sectors—is developing an arts-based campaign that positions artists as catalysts to humanize the issues around the 2020 Census and galvanizes the public to participate. Headquartered and in partnership with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA)—and ignited by support from San Francisco’s Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs (OCEIA)—their COME TO YOUR CENSUS initiative includes an arts-based public media campaign, city-wide art activations across disciplines (visual art, music, dance, film, spoken word, etc.) staged throughout San Francisco, from January through July 2020, and an open-source toolkit, for organizations and individuals to ignite their communities around the 2020 Census.
