About the Event

“The moment we choose to love we begin to move against domination, against oppression. The moment we choose to love, we begin to move toward freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others. That action is the testimony of love as the practice of freedom.”
—bell hooks

This year, 21Minus asks: how has love acted as a liberating force in your life? Liberation is defined as the act of being freed from imprisonment, slavery, or some type of captivity. Love and liberation are two things that go hand in hand. One cannot exist without the other. There are different kinds of love: self, familial, platonic, romantic, community, cultural––the bounds are limitless. Contributing youth artist were asked to consider the theme of “Love and Liberation” broadly and to interpret this prompt creatively in their submissions.
