DESCRIPTION

Join Artists of the 99% for a panel & workshop:
STRATEGIES FOR ARTISTS IN SOCIAL JUSTICE MOVEMENTS


Saturday, January 14 @ 6 - 9PM
Southern Exposure
3030 20th Street San Francisco

Join Artists of the 99% for a conversation and workshop about strategies for artists participating in social justice movements, including the international Occupy movement at Southern Exposure gallery. We will kick-start the discussion with a panel featuring: David Solnit (artist and activist, formerly of Art and Revolution), Jeff Chang (author of Can't Stop, Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation), Favianna Rodriguez (artist who, along with Jeff Chang, organized Culture Strike against Arizona's SB1070 Immigration Law) and Zeph Fishlyn (of the Beehive Design Collective, making giant collaborative graphics for education and organizing).

After the panel, we will hold small-group discussions to workshop our own ideas and experiences with the goal of connecting artists to each other and strengthening our movements for social and economic justice. Please bring your own ideas and experiences. Let's compare notes and share resources!
