2019 has been so full of so much, including vision! After doing art, art journaling experiences, and writing & illustrating children's books, I am declaring, with more umph than ever, that the umbrella that all of my work lives under is liberation!
To me liberation looks like healing, representation, justice, and expansive opportunities for all, Through my art and art journaling experiences, there is healing work. Through my children's books, I do believe there is healing (so many people have told me that Genny reminds them of themselves when they were little!) I realized though, that I want to tell more stories. I am creating platform for marginalized authors to tell their stories, their way, through the Happy and Free Kid's Space publishing company and digital space. Representation is so important! Not only do children need to see themselves (and adults sometimes need to reconnect,) but we all need to encounter stories different than our own!
I believe books and access to literature are keys to justice and liberation!
Creating children's literature is a small but powerful piece of the puzzle. BUT, I feel like showing children with marginalized identities just living, learning, playing, and solving problems makes a difference,
I launched a fundraiser on Indiegogo that raised $4281 in seed funds! You can still click to hear me talk about my plans and, although the fundraiser is closed, if you are interested in supporting the project, funds can be sent via www.paypal.me/jenniferpricedavis.
If you click you get to hear me talk *and* rap!
Well friends, it's time to walk the dog and get ready for what lies ahead. I am sending love your way!
