Grace Kress is the founder of Shelby X Studios, which merges art and activism to build community, create educational resources and share accessible information that counters harmful mainstream narratives. In order to dismantle systems of oppression we need to be able to imagine a world without them – Shelby x Studios helps us to help us envisage what that world looks like. Inspired by artivists such as Sylvia Pankhurst, Frida Kahlo and Emory Douglas, we use creativity to strengthen revolutionary culture. Working with groups such as Justice for Grenfell, Women Against Rape, Fight Racism, Fight Imperialism and the Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Defense Campaign UK, we have created a wide range of campaign materials including posters, flyers, badges, banners and clothing. We are launching a new art x activism e-zine in January 2021 and will be commissioning artists to create accessible, educational and motivational content.
Grace is a guest on Taking Up Space: Conversations About Digital Activism.
