About Art for Ourselves

At Art for Ourselves (AFO) our goal is the liberation and prosperity of marginalized communities. We are an online grassroots community publication dedicated to validating and humanizing the experiences of marginalized peoples - by creating art for ourselves. Our definition of art is expansive. Creating art for ourselves means creating our lives in the context we’re in and having the courage to imagine a future in which we are all allowed to thrive. We strive to center, share, and celebrate the stories that are most often erased from mainstream narratives. In doing so, we shift mindsets and facilitate understanding of how oppression manifests in our lives and how we liberate ourselves from the capitalist white supremacist-heteropatriarchy. Our monthly online issues feature accessible and timely interviews, reflections on identity and current events, self-love practices, and guides for community gatherings.
