Match Studio Collaborative National Volunteer Week Artist: DJ Agana

Designed to highlight the role of art as advocacy, and advocacy and activism as two key expressions of modern volunteerism, Match Studio Collaborative provides a forum for artists of color to produce work that is then reproduced in highly accessible formats to fundraise towards a meaningful cause of each featured artist’s choice.

April's featured artist DJ Agana converges traditional large scale murals and contemporary street art by painting prolific imagery encompassing black liberation, women's empowerment, racial and environmental justice.

DJ Agana's artwork combines two great passions: graffiti art and environmental advocacy. Proceeds from DJ Agana's merchandise will go to a nonprofit close to her heart: Few and Far Women, an assemblage of women who beautify the streets with a shared commitment to creativity, education, and social justice.
