Poets, performance artists, print makers, video and graphic designers, muralists, and new media architects, Alixa and Naima create compelling works at the service of their vision for a more just and livable world. They just published a breathtaking poetry anthology, available at They tells us about their valient projects and experiences in art-activism, and then get into the juiciness of vision-work, the future of human society, and their advice to budding "solutionaries."
