Death to Silence Political Art Collective

permalink   Sat, Dec 3, 2016 @ 8:23 PM
My friend Adrienne Pearson of Readership Hostile started a Facebook group called Death to Silence Political Art Collective. the idea is to flood the internet with political and activist art on January 20, 2017 — inauguration day in the United States. She describes the group as follows:

“Hello Everyone! I’ve invited you to this group because I think we can use our art and creative talents to unite people and make a change. Here is what I would like to do:
I would like to fill the internet with political based art on JANUARY 20, 2017 INAUGURATION DAY!!!!
Write a song, paint a picture, collaborate with people. Film it and post it. Let’s show our unity and educate people through our art!!!!
I want this to stretch across the world. WE WILL BE HEARD!”

The plan includes tagging your inauguration day upload of political art with the hashtag #deathtosilence. (The hashtag for this event may change.)

If want to join the Facebook group, let me know and I will invite you.

Greetings all — It is my intention to put together a special Mixin Kitchen playlist of protest songs — sounds of activism, action, politics, environmental action and peace — for the presidential inauguration later this week as a contribution to the Death to Silence Political Art Collective that aims to fill the internet with protest art on January 20.

If you have a track, or know of a song on ccMixter that you think would be a great addition, leave a message here with a link to the url of the track, and I will try to add it to the playlist.

Your contribution is much appreciated!

SackJo22, this is fantastic! Piero Peluche and I happen to have a track that fits the bill… here’s a link:

This track by Snowflake and Blue Wave Theory also comes to mind…

Thanks! Added a couple of these to the playlist. By the way, on WakeUp WakeUp you remind me of Iggy Pop. That is a good thing. Hang in there!
