WELCOME TO BRIDGE'S WORLD, a world without police and jails.
We decided to break the walls of jails and police stations and kept them as the form of bridges. We also colored the grey walls to erase them completely. We are building fun-shaped buildings because the form of squares and rectangles reminds of us those cages. At Bridge's world, we have so much money left to invest in our community.
We have schools that are diverse and responsible for educating every single child and will not suspend them. Students will grow up with lots of resources including mandatory book reading of race, justice, and love. The library is filled with authors from everywhere in the world and students can easily recognize themselves. Of course, tuition is free.
We all have a home. Everyone has a shelter to be inside. There are a lot of housing buildings and neighbors are not divided by race. Anyone can buy a house! There are so many to choose from. Homeless people can easily find housing where they can shelter. The shelter provides food, job training, and connection.
Anyone who is sick can and should go to the hospital. There are so many hospitals you can choose from and they accept every patient. Signing up for health care is really easy. Every newborn child of Bridge's World Citizen actually just get the insurance as a right to live healthily. Mental health and therapy center is easy and affordable to find. They will match you with the therapist you associate with, and form group sessions.
Public art and park. We can find them everywhere and they are lush and beautiful and help us to get inspired and take a break. The community center is very active and providing additional education and fun family activities.
This is a future building that we don't know yet. But we thought it was important to after building necessary buildings. This brings love and peace. what can this be?

I made this print to help you visualize and radically imagine what it is like to live in Bridge's world. I believe pictures always help to achieve our goals as a community. I hope you keep writing and drawing your visions too! This reading about Angela Davis made me draw this.
As a first step in doing this work, Angela Davis offered art as a metaphor for how we may begin to envision a new future – a future that does not capitalize on the violence of humans, animals, and the environment. “Great art has the possibility to evade our lives; it makes us feel something before we know how to express it.” While highlighting the challenges of imagining a new society, she emphasized the importance of not blindly accepting the options presented to us. “Art reminds us we are not obligated to recognize what is given simply because it is given. Rather, it helps us cultivate the imagination – to make something new of the old. [source]
