"Manifest Differently" is not just a project; it's a movement. Spearheaded by artist/poet Kim Shuck and artist/writer Megan Wilson, this visionary initiative is set to collaborate with 38 diverse, multigenerational visual and media artists and poets over the next year. Their mission is to delve deep into the historical complexities of Manifest Destiny, the expansionist ideology that shaped America's westward expansion, and its enduring impact on multicultural and multi-ethnic communities in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Through the potent mediums of literary, visual, and media arts storytelling, "Manifest Differently" seeks to uncover the shadows of history, exposing the legacies of violence, trauma, addiction, and the emergence of resistance and resilience.
