“My biggest takeaway from this event was that wow, my voice matters,” says Rhea Ewing, artist at last year’s TransLiberation Art Coalition show in the spring. “There is an incredible amount of talent and push for change in this room. It’s breathtaking.”
The TransLiberation Art Coalition was created to empower and elevate the lives of our transgender and gender nonconforming community. The coalition fights erasure, bigotry, and media misconceptions by focusing on the art, music, and writing of transgender people themselves. The Transliberation Art Coalition is led by Kaci Sullivan, TK Morton, T Banks, and Rhea Ewing. These activists and artists are dedicated to creating change and connection in our community.
Last year, the TransLiberation Art Coalition hosted two art shows that were met with incredible success. Hundreds of attendees were treated to an evening of art, vendors, live music, poetry, and comedy that challenged hate, gender norms, and systematic oppression. The organizers prioritize the most marginalized, which leads to insights into how racism, ableism, and other forms of bigotry are related to transphobia… and how they can be dismantled together.
This year the Transliberation Art Coalition has partnered with the New Harvest Foundation and the ArtWrite Collective to make the event bigger and better than ever before by providing professional development workshops to all creative contributors and scholarships for transgender and gender nonconforming artists of color who require financial assistance to participate in the show.
Come see this new classic in the Madison arts scene on Saturday April 14th, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Badger Rock, 501 E. Badger Rd. It’s an evening you won’t forget.
