The "Take what you NEED?" Project
As you know by now, I am always searching for new ways to be inspired and empowered. I also enjoy stunts and the unexpected. I thrive on causing a scene and out of the box thinking. Yesterday on FB I found the above picture in my timeline and was stopped right in my tracks. I was moved by the concept of taking what you need. It reminds me of my love of manifestation and the law of attraction. If I have said it once, I have said it 1 million times: "Words heal. Words change. Words are powerful."
I am urging everyone to sit down right now with a sharpie, paper and scissors to create one of these signs. There is no better time for a mass movement of words to heal than now. We all need to be empowered right now!
1. Make a sign now.
2. Post them everywhere. Some ideas are coffee shops, your office, your school, grocery stores, on light poles, at your front door, in your cubicle, etc., etc.
3. Take a quick photo of the first day you post it.
4. Come back a week or two weeks later to see what people needed.
5. Share your photos and stories of when and where you posted it here or at my twitter page @ladyterror
6. Spread the word all over.
7. Write the link to this blog www.ladyterror.blogspot.com on the sign, so the person who "needs" can come here to share their thoughts on the project.
I can't wait to hear from you and see your photos. Today I made one and put it up near our front door. On the way out today, I pulled off "PEACE." What do you need right now?
Here is an example of a sign made in Chicago by my friend Coya Paz
I create art for the ones who lost their voice a long time ago. I believe that impromptu spectacles can bring awareness to social justice issues that paralyze our communities. Lady Terror examines the relationship between public space and performance space and also explores ranting as a medium to address social issues and as a tool to empower communities. My art is local and neighborhood specific in its execution but global in its ideas around poverty, injustice and violence.
