About Maysoun

100 Days Action​ is an artist collective that supports creative resistance projects that stand against bigotry, xenophobia, racism, sexism, and the destruction of our environment. Formed immediately after the 2016 Presidential election, 100 Days Action used Trump’s 100-Day Plan as a platform to launch a 100-day calendar of Bay Area and web-based acts of resistance. From January 21 through April 30, 2017, the group featured over 152 actions, published 14 poems and 3 chapbooks, participated in 3 residencies, and curated 3 exhibitions including 24 Hour Resistance at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

Building community at the intersection of art, activism, and social engagement, 100 Days Action continues to produce exhibitions, performances, protests, and group actions in support of a more just world. 100 Days Action is Jeremiah Barber, Ingrid Rojas Contreras, Alicia Escott, Carolyn Janssen, Ben Leon, Ken Lo, Laura Ceron Melo, Katina Papson Rigby, Surabhi Saraf, Julie Sutherland, and Maysoun Wazwaz. 100daysaction.net
