Hello all. This is Max.
We at Intuitive Public Media are considering the intersections of a number of crucial conversations going by the initials “c.c.” — the creative clout of media privilege where it is most needed in severely affected, violently intersectionalized communities; the as-yet-untold stories of my professional history with Adobe and their Creative Cloud software — and how that software and media community support is now being (wonderfully) extended to more marginalized co-creators through the Crip Camp Adobe Fellowship.
(Aside, re: above fellowship: If you need help submitting your application the way I have needed help submitting mine, I’ll support you in any way I can — email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The more applications submitted, the better!)
We have compiled mailing campaigns and letter draft templates in our Intuitive community knowledgebase which support survivors of severe marginalization and disability in restoring their social authority through collaborative self-advocacy on public multimedia platforms. These efforts are most greatly needed where we can prevent premature death, human trafficking, and suicidality.
Over and over we are asking — figuratively and literally — who else should we Cc?
Particularly, we need the help of non-disabled groups, individuals, and professional networks. We need your help, too. We need these conversations raised inclusively by all who wish to extend the privilege of community belonging to those excluded and needlessly suffering.
How do we ensure we include
survivors of severe disability
when we connect creatively
to make meaningful media
in caring community?
More insights will follow in the next Cc.
Thanks for reading.
