Join DeeArah Wright, Alec Duffy, Lauren Hudson, Jamie Shearn Coan, and members of The People's Think Tank from JACK's Reparations365 series for this important discussion «What Would A Solidarity Economy in the Performing Arts Sector Look Like?» in the Skylight Room (9100) at the The Graduate Center, CUNY.
This event will showcase the programming and organizing work that the Brooklyn performance space JACK has undertaken since February 2017, through their Reparations365 Series. We will hear from JACK's co-directors, DeeArah Wright and Alec Duffy, as well as members of The People's Think Tank, which formed as a working committee during the series, committed to choosing and implementing a concrete action step related to reparations, with a specific focus on solidarity economy. Lauren Hudson, a doctoral candidate in Earth and Environmental Sciences Program,The Graduate Center, CUNYCenter, CUNY and member of SolidarityNYC, will provide historical and contemporary contexts for solidarity economy and help move us from considering JACK as a case study into considering how to support ongoing efforts and create new initiatives in our own communities and organizations. We will brainstorm strategies capable of disrupting economic disparity, a crucial factor contributing to ongoing racial inequity, through a reparative redistribution of resources. #Reparations365
