MOVEMENTS is a new arts journal published by the Brown Arts Institute, which brings together multidisciplinary artists to respond to urgent questions in society and culture.
This intersectional platform traces pathways between aesthetics, place, and activism. Rooted in Moshassuck (otherwise known as Providence), the ancestral land of the Narragansett, Wampanoag, and Nipmuc people, developed through slave labor and Indigenous erasure, we hope to center the legacies and voices of those who have historically been excluded from scholarly and artistic spaces. Our contributors are students, academics, journalists, activists and artists connecting theory and embodied creativity. Through ethical, empathetic, and community-led research practices, we foster integrity, experimentation, and engaged cultural criticism. Articles are commissioned and edited through an intensive and collaborative process, in response to wider intellectual and artistic conversations.
