the art rebellion

the art rebellion is a platform and resource focused on artists who are also activists across the U.S. While mainstream arts journalism focuses on well-established artists working in NYC and L.A., we center artists in underreported regions and communities. Through storytelling and journalism, we operate in solidarity with grassroots artists and empowers creatives to make a living and impact through their work.

the art rebellion is led by Makeda Easter, an award-winning journalist who covers the intersection of the arts and identity.
