Unconditional Inclusion Artistic Projects

Ra’al Ki Victorieux

Throughout my professional career, one of the compasses that are an integral part of my life and work is: unity. In this article, I tell you about the cultural issues and projects for inclusion.

Why collaborate for Unity?

We are not only interested in unity because teamwork stimulates creativity, adds talents, increases motivation and satisfaction from contributors. Nor is it just about paying attention to people with disabilities but to all people without distinguishing by race, social condition, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, migrant status, age, economic level , among other aspects.

We speak of “Inclusion, International, Unconditional”, through art and culture, education and cultural promotion, disseminating values ​​that support practices for unity. We must prepare the ground so that there is a positive environment among the members of societies, which favors communication, commitment and trust in the best way.

II. For the Development of Cultural Policy

With various actions we have worked in favor of issues related to cultural policy: In defense of freedom of expression, in favor of copyright, for a development of cultural policy that encourages creativity with fiscal incentives, for freedom of criticism, etc. Concerning each of these issues, we have promoted the creation and dissemination of manifestos and digital work.

Here are some of RK Victorieux’s works: In 2007, Ra’al Ki, in solidarity, reiterated her support for freedom of expression, in this case of the Oaxaca media, signing the Communiqué against the repression of the free media in Oaxaca. In 2006 Ra’al Ki supported the MARCAZ movement in Azcapotzalco as a solidarity signatory, to request the authorities for budgets for the construction of the School of Arts. Joel Nava Polina writes on the movement’s page: ‘Art and Culture are, in all their essence, pure democratic elements. By guaranteeing respect for the exercise of these rights, we ensure the well-being of the essence of men and women of the world.’

In 2005 she manifested in favor of freedom of expression. Shee also declares against the cultural management of Enrique Semo, because he had censored her work ‘Nothing here happens’, which criticized the lack of presidential strategies; in the exhibition on the occasion of ‘Freedom of expression and Democracy’.

Her work was censored by Filemón Primitivo Arcos, of the Culture Commission. Sometime later: she presented a performance, in front of the Palace, to reiterate the freedom of expression.
