Words by Fearless Collective, creators of the Fearless Immunity fundraiser

In this time of Fear and Trauma, Fearless Collective is bringing together artists from across India to raise funds for organizations  providing care and support due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

If there’s anything this time has taught us – it is that we are an interconnected (breathing) whole. 

Our bodies and societies are interlinked systems- and we need holistic approaches to healing. We are eyes, bones, lungs, skin, heart, head.  

We are spirit, emotion, body and mind. 

Each organ plays a vital and individual role, and together create life. 

We are creating a collective body of work, each that represents a different organ in need of healing.

Lungs for the oxygen we breathe.

Hands for those who continue to labour on the frontlines.

A Heart for all the emotional trauma and pain that needs to be transformed.

In this moment, we (together) need to generate collective immunity that resources not just one part, but the system as a whole.

Fearless Movement

The Fearless Movement aspires to be a movement of women from the Global South, paint brushes in hand, reclaiming self-representation, transforming public spaces in their home countries, and facilitating affirmative conversations on social justice. Over the last two years we have been training more artists and activists to respond to moments of fear and trauma with beauty, using the Fearless methodology.

In this moment of need for India and South Asia, artists from across the region are coming together to create and contribute their art to raise funds.

Donations

One intention of this fundraiser is to diversify both the source and destination for funds raised. Artists were asked to pick charities they wanted to support – in this way, a range of charities and organisations are being supported by the fundraiser – from bigger NGOs, to small groups, to informal collectives. Based on the concept of holistic healing and healing the collective body, artists were encouraged to create art that corresponded to the work of the charity they wanted to support: painted lungs towards oxygen and ventilators; a mind towards mental health initiatives and so on.
