Freedom Futures Collective
We gonna get free, or die tryin'
Freedom Futures Collective (FFC) is a multi-award winning multimedia group of artist activists. The collective was envisioned by producer and educator, OnRaé LaTeal in response to the 2020 social justice movements centering Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. Her intention was to build a team of intergenerational creatives who would work collaboratively to fight against police violence and amplify the movement for ALL Black lives.
Specializing in multimedia production, creative arts education and youth development, the collective is made up of experienced artist educators, and youth artists seeking opportunities to use their art to create the FREEDOM future they dream. FFC is commissioned by local and international organizations facilitating campaigns, programs, direct actions, and other special initiatives dedicated to combating various social justice issues that impact marginalized communities.

Debut Project | “We Keep Us Safe”
Seven youth artists helped to produce FFC’s debut project while serving as Production Team interns for eight weeks. The audio/visual project, “We Keep Us Safe” explores the reimagining of public safety and challenged program participants to develop skills in music production, film production and civic leadership.
Production Team interns and FFC’s founding members worked collaboratively to curate and produce dynamic content including original freedom songs, music videos, short films, and immersive excerpts from core organizers in Washington, D.C.
