We Thrive 2018

  • Canal Street Market 265 Canal Street New York, NY, 10013 United States (map)

Since Red Dot’s inception, creative expression has been our foundational approach to highlighting the social, cultural and political practices surrounding civil and reproductive rights. Our annual art show serves as a platform for artists within our community to display work geared towards our collective consciousness.


Last year‘s show included a combination of visual work, installations, and live paintings that highlighted sustainable menstrual practices. This year, we want to broaden the scope of work and take time to reflect. In light of increasing physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion within our community, we want to offer a body of work that not only reflects on how we survived, but also how we channel negativity into change.We aim to thrive. We encourage all project proposals to align with that message so that we establish a clear dialogue centered around positive action and affirmation.
