We are strong supporters of respecting individual autonomy and free speech.
As an art collective, one of the most important things to us are the artists’ rights to their own work. We also encourage our artists to create whatever speaks to them no matter how controversial.
We do not believe anyone should be silenced or ‘de-platformed’ for their opinions. Everyone has a right to their opinion and to speak it, although that does not give anyone the right to act on those values if they infringe upon the rights of others.
We believe in separating the art from the artist as well: every person is flawed and that is no reason to deny ourselves the beauty they may have created based on their personal values or mistakes they have made.
