FWD Nation has partnered with The Radical Imagination Project in Los Angeles to bring The Radical Imagination Series to the All of the Lights section. The Radical Imagination Series highlights innovative homegrown talent that inspire change in their community.
”The act of imagining is the root of all creation.” Amiri Baraka. The human spirit is beautiful, naturally creative, and inherently powerful. At the Radical Imagination Project, we believe that all people must develop their creative potential in order to construct a vision for a better tomorrow. Imaginative and artistic expression has in part sparked every great movement in our past. The centrality of the visual arts, music, and the spoken word have always held a critical space in the legacy of positive change for our communities.
Co-Creators Richard Stevenson Jr. and Aaron LaMarr Burleson created this series as a way to bring the stories of progressive aspiring artists to our Millennial Generation to encourage them to pursue their passions and positively impact the world around them.
The common link between the artists we feature lies in their passionate love for art as well as their unwavering commitment to social justice and positive change in their communities. So, with a camera, some great friends, and desire to synthesize our ideas for art-inspired social change, we present to you The Radical Imagination Series, an episodic look at artist/activist/visionaries who inspire change in our communities.
