#notwhite collective is a group of 14 women artists elevating the stories of the others. Those who do not fit neatly in the consensus boxes, neatly in cultural categories.

#notwhite collective is a bi/multi-racial/cultural, immigrant or descendants of immigrants. They have come together, to question, to investigate, dig deep into what identity is within and without the construct and context of white – not in skin color, but as a system of oppression, a system they do not align ourselves with. In lieu of police brutality, calls for bans, for walls, they hope to provide an artistic platform for difficult discussions on the complexities of cultural identity in America to move us towards humanity.

What we need is more people who specialize in the impossible. -Theodore Roethke
