The American University Antiracist Research and Policy Center, in collaboration with Eaton Workshop and | ‘sindikit |, announce ARTIVISM: TALMBOUT, a community-wide initiative designed to showcase the ways artists and art activators are contributing to national conversations about anti-racism, systemic racism, and institutional accountability. 

Inspired by Janelle Monae’s anthem ‘Talmbout’, we invited artists and designers of all ages to create posters that engage antiracism in the 2020 presidential election. Themes included voting early, poll work, voter suppression, and human rights. 2020 was a year for major cultural, social, and political shifts— and these changes were intimately tied to voting.

Congratulations to the following artists and designers on their inclusion in TALMBOUT!
