Social Change Through Art
Rent the Painting: Support Our Group
The girls chose the name “united reSISTERS” as they would like this group to portray the ultimate sisterhood: bonding together to resist hate, prejudice, and misunderstanding while doing so through education, resilience, and love.
They are using art as a medium to focus on rights. Their pieces of artwork are intended to shine a light on international affairs, highlight the strives of immigrants and refugees and communicate a sense of Somali identity and presence to the larger Green Bay community.
A Resettlement Journey
This beautiful 48x48 mural was painted by a group of young Somali women who traveled great distances to join the Green Bay community. This piece pays tribute to their Somali identity while telling the story of their travels through various countries to arrive here in the U.S.
Rent this piece to be displayed in your business today! The artists are excited at the opportunity to discuss their work and inform the wider Green Bay community on both their culture and their individual refugee story.
We're Writing a Book!
Rent this beautiful, one-of-a-kind art piece to display in your local Green Bay business today! Rental fees are negotiable and all proceeds are used to support the continued efforts of the group.
The piece measures at 48x48 and will easily hang on any wall.
When you rent the piece members of the United ReSISTERS would be honored to come to your venue and discuss how and why they produced this stunning canvas and what it symbolizes to them. It is a wonderful opportunity to start a conversation about diversity and inclusion and meet the incredible artists behind the piece.
It's official! The United ReSISTERS are embarking on publishing a book! We've partnered with Titletown Publishing, a local publishing company in Green Bay, and expect to have our book completed by fall 2018.
The book intends to be a collection of poetry, narrative writing, letters and, of course, photography to produce a final book available for sale. It will have a focus on celebrating Somali culture and traditions while highlighting the girls journey as new residents of the Green Bay area. Hear their story through their own voices and follow along as they grow, learn and, ultimately, build better futures for themselves and younger generations of Somali immigrants this academic year.
