Episode 09 with Jodi Darby

Jodi Darby

Jodi Darby is a media artist, activist and educator specializing in experimental video and photography.  Her work reflects an interest in re-purposing history, mapping the changing North American landscape and finding beauty in that which has been discarded and abandoned.

Her projects deal with rebellion and joy and her work seeks to amplify stories that often go unheard while pushing back at the narratives of dominant culture. She has collaborated with members of the Black Panther Party, the Dineh Nation, the Bolivian Anarcha-Feminist collective Mujeres Creando and the American Indian Movement.

Her most recent documentary Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon which she co-directed with  Julie Perini and Erin Yanke, has won multiple awards and has been programmed internationally. Darby is the Education Director of POWGirls, a program that teaches a curriculum of video production and media literacy to girls and non-binary youth, an instructor at Outside the Frame, a film program for houseless youth, and a professor at Portland State University's School of Art + Design.
