AITA SULSER & DEBORAH KAPPELER

The Unexpected Gratitude, 2015

Aita and Deborah didn’t know each other before TOY. They started doing things that matter independently like donating blood, making cookies, taking care of children etc. But then they started to motivate others and organize events for other TOY friends to participate. These awards are for their contagious attitudes: “do little things in life, for one day you will look back and realize they were the big things.”

A Seed of a Creative Social Movement, 2014

Titus worked for three weeks at the De Anza College in California. He worked with a diverse group of students to create artworks that address the issues of the American prison industrial complex and police harassment of young black men specifically and people of color in general. He didn’t really know what to expect when he started the project, but what he learned and what he could guide his students to was planting a seed. A seed of a creative social movement.
