Help Make “HONOR THE TREATIES” The PBS People’s Choice Winner!

Honor the Treaties examines photographer Aaron Huey’s work for Native American rights on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The film explores the idea that journalists sometimes ‘get the wrong story.’ Using Aaron’s seven-year experience as a photographer on the Pine Ridge Reservation, we examine the idea of growth and change in relationship to telling a story. Our friend, Shepard Fairey did the graphics.

Semi-Permanent launches +20

What will happen when you put 20 emerging creative 
talents & top line mentors in a room together?
Semi-Permanent is giving twenty creatives, irrespective of their stage of career & genre of skills, an opportunity to collaborate on a real life project, giving insights into the exciting, fast paced and meaningful projects happening at Google today.
Each participant will be invited to work with four Semi-Permanent artist mentors, four Google designers and 19 of their peers in an all day workshop in Los Angeles. The heart of +20 is collaboration, the benefits that creatives all gain from working within a group. How learning from each individual can help shape and enhance the creative process. We will be giving 20 individuals an opportunity to work with other talented creatives and also have their work guided by industry professionals.
Who knows what opportunities or ideas will come from the +20 workshop?
Kicking off what will become a series of events, +20 is calling for submissions for anyone in, near, or willing to travel to Los Angeles. The workshop will be held on 20 March, just two days before the inaugural Semi-Permanent Los Angeles event.

I wanted to share an extremely rad video from Israel based artists, Broken Fingaz Crew… I had a chance to work with Gon and Raz from BRC on a Primus poster a couple of months back (below).

Here, Crew members Tant and Unga paint the walls in Israel. Music by Boreta & Glitch Mob.
