Re: Creative clout and Intuitive recovery; community caring -as- performance poetry; the anti-racist, anti-ableist potential of Adobe Creative Cloud* and all professional media networks to stop human trafficking through emergent community-centric survivor-led income streams; Crip Camp*, Intuitive listening, and how caring communities honor the Social Model of Disability*; the crucial restoration of creative healing, media privilege, and cultural competency to severely disabled communities, especially violently intersectionalized, multiply-marginalized communities of color affected by environmental contaminants.
PS. Who else should we Cc? Contact us by email.
This is a post by Zia from Austin —– identifying myself using this composite name in order to more safely speak with the collective voice that includes myself and others who are living endeavoring at similar violent intersections.
In private Intuitive work groups we are talking here lately about CC – – – cultural competency, cultivating creativity, and consciousness of consent (!!) it has started raining very hard here. I am lucky to be inside. Lots of others aren’t.
Max M. E. Morris and myself as well as others have worked compiling resources for others surviving intersections of human trafficking in compassionate, creative communities that often have no idea trafficking is happening in their vicinity.
Friends of ours are in Austin, New York, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Boston, and lots more places we should go on keep naming. Cc — consent, culture, communication, compassion – has important things to do with vulnerable friends being safe to create and collaborate. We are glad to be sustaining this Intuitive Public Flame. We wish for more Burners In Service to join us to make communities safe for trauma survivors.
We’re alive kicking and many wonderful things are just beginning.
Keep gentle powerful heart light candle flame burning.
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 email@example.com. 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.
