We are white neighbors in Wedgwood who are helping create awareness that Wedgwood isn't safe for all.
We are BIPOC neighbors in Wedgwood who
are holding our community accountable to unlearning white supremacy.
Together we are creating conscious spaces for community engagement through art and actions in Wedgwood.
Us white folks thought we were doing all the work 'good liberals' in Seattle should do. Until now.
There is no way forward without action.
Art by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh – Seattle is Black -During her time as Amplifier’s artist in residence in 2017, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh delved deep into the stories and experiences of BIPOC in Seattle. For her campaign, aptly titled Seattle is Black, she interviewed dozens of people, photographed them, and turned their narratives into drawings and video documentation. “One thing that seemed consistent in their experiences was the frustration of navigating racist systems and people that present as liberal and progressive on the surface,” she says. This theme is prevalent throughout the series, which is part of Fazlalizadeh’s larger project, America Is Black. Through her collaboration with Amplifier and her independent projects, the artist strives to reclaim and recenter the voices of BIPOC to show the reality of what it means to be “American.”
