Blooming In The Midst of Gentrification
Digital Mural
"Blooming In The Midst of Gentrification" is a collaboration between youth from People Organizing to Demand Environmental & Economic Rights (P.O.D.E.R.), Galeria De La Raza and CultureStrike. The young activists from P.O.D.E.R. collaborated with CultureStrike artists Susa Cortez and Julio Salgado on a billboard that portrayed some of the things they are doing to fight back against gentrification. They specifically wanted to hight light their #PUEBLOTE campaign where P.O.D.E.R. has organized with Mission residents to reclaim public lands for community use based on community planning efforts that bring together the knowledge and experience of neighborhood residents.


Sat 8/2 - Fri 9/19
Carving Through Borders
Gallery Exhibition

#CarvingThroughBorders project is a collection of 13 oversized woodblock prints with pro-migrant messaging commissioned by CultureStrike.

Undocumented and documented artists from the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York and Florida were asked to illustrate various aspects of migration with a local, national or worldwide scope: detention, deportation, displacement, discrimination, exploitation, violence, youth, criminalization, legalization, economic and ecological brutality wherever and however it occurs.

Artists: Santi Armengod, Felipe Baeza, Carol Montes, Julio Salgado, Favianna Rodriguez, Susalita Cortez, Oree Originol, Chucha Marquez, Imin Yeh, Emory Douglas, James Williams, Rommy Enciso, DJ Agana, Erin Yoshi
