Seeing Red: Voices of the Gulf South


People of the Gulf South affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita: We want to know


From orgasmic joy to primordial angst – the City of New Orleans, as with Life itself, encompasses the extremes of human experience. Launched during the V-Day SUPERLOVE V TO THE TENTH Celebration in April 2008, Seeing Red: Voices of the Gulf South is a collaborative project that encourages the people of the Gulf South to express their feelings about the violence, loss, devastation and hardship they’ve experienced due to the storms as well as personal expressions of love, passion, courage, strength, joy and ecstasy.

Words and images created in red are being collected through July 31st and will be compiled into a book and traveling art exhibition that will tour nationally. The hundreds of works on paper created by participants of all ages and from all walks of life, answer the question: “What makes you see RED?”

If you’re interested in participating – or organizing a group to participate – in the project, please contact us by writing theredcollaborative[at]mac[dot]com. We’d love to have you on board!
