REV- an art, media, and social justice studio-based non-profit.
(2)

Key projects include El Bibliobandido, a literacy initiative created in a region of Honduras with an 80% illiteracy rate that involves a story-eating bandit who terrorizes little kids until they offer him stories they've written; Video Slink Uganda, a project involving burning experimental videos by contemporary African/African-American artists onto pirated DVDs and circulated through Uganda's black market cinema; a public art nanny hotline that informs New York's 200,000 domestic workers about their rights; the NannyVan, a bright orange mobile design studio that "accelerates the movement for domestic workers' rights nationwide"; the CareForce, a public art project amplifying the voices of America's fastest growing workforce — caregivers; and publications that trammel the boundary between the printed word and public sphere.

Mission: Studio REV- (as in, to rev an engine). A non-profit studio, we work as a team of artists, media makers, techies, low-wage workers, immigrants, and youth producing creative media and public art about the issues we face. Recognized for our unique perspective, our work has been featured at venues such as The White House, Tribeca Film Festival, The Museum of Modern Art, Art Brussels, the Walker Art Center and has received critical acclaim in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Art Forum, The Los Angeles Times, and more.
