2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Informed by personal experiences & community talkbacks, Katie will produce relatable content, in the form of video shorts, for fat femmes. Katie hopes to forward the radical fatness and the fat acceptance movement, which are often left out of social justice discourse, meanwhile, in recent years, the #bodypositive movement has been co-opted. The culminating viewing party will be held in a public park as a community space that extends the conversation on fat liberation to thin audiences and push the boundaries of public fat joy.
