The Black School, founded by artists Joseph Cuillier III and Shani Peters in 2016, is an experimental art school teaching radical Black history. The Process Deck is a tarot-style interactive methodology tool for brainstorming and designing creative activism projects. The cards are to be used in an art making capacity to help creatives, educators, and organizers explore how art can activate change on a local level. Through a series of questions and choices participants identify issues of primary significance to them, define the terms and context around those issues and design impactful projects to address them. Terms in this deck reference The Movement for Black Lives, Beautiful Trouble, Universidad de la Tierra, the Black Panther Party's 10 Point Program, various academic dictionaries, encyclopedias, and art education sources including The Tate Modern, Art21, and Armin Hofmann. Information from these sources is intermixed with the practices and working knowledge of The Black School's model, organizers, and advisors.
