Discussion | Work in the Cultural Economy We Want: Cooperatives (online)


Cooperative and worker-owned enterprises in the arts and culture sector are gaining traction (again). In the financial crisis of 2008, the number of worker cooperatives doubled. The oldest Native co-op in the country, Qualla Arts and Crafts, is led by culture-bearers. The first democratically managed investment fund in the country, the Boston Ujima Project, places BIPOC arts and cultural organizing at the heart of its work. The oldest non-extractive venture capital firm in the United States, The Working World, was started by artists. The system culture-bearers and artists want is not only possible—it already exists and can be strengthened and cultivated with intention. This event brings together cultural cooperatives in a conversation about protocols that build shared political, economic, and cultural power. Computer scientist, game designer, educator, and co-founder of Emma Technology Cooperative Ramsey Nasser leads participants in a collaborative game designed for the seminar.

Author Reading | Poetic Operations: Trans of Color Art in Digital Media (online)


Micha Cárdenas considers contemporary digital media, artwork, and poetry in order to articulate trans of color strategies of safety and survival. Drawing on decolonial theory, women of color feminism, media theory, and queer of color critique, Cárdenas develops a method she calls algorithmic analysis. Understanding algorithms as sets of instructions designed to perform specific tasks (like a recipe), she breaks them into their component parts, called operations. By focusing on these operations, she identifies how trans and gender nonconforming artists, especially artists of color, rewrite algorithms to counter violence and develop strategies for liberation.

Workshop | Intro to Awakening Your True Voice: Health and Vitality through Better Breathing


There is no greater joy than to use our voices in a way that is powerful, spontaneous and fully expressive. Developing a physical understanding of voice and breath support helps us release inhibiting vocal and physical tension to become more musical singers and more engaging speakers. This online course creates a supportive environment in which self-consciousness dissolves and your true voice emerges. Breath is fundamental to every aspect of our life. We are born with an ability to breathe deeply and fully, but as we go through life, stress and tension can cause our breathing to become shallow and constricted and our voices strained and weak. Inefficient breathing can lead to fatigue, anxiety, muscular tension and even digestive problems. Getting back to the way nature designed us to breathe is a tonic that revitalizes body and mind. In this course we will explore ways to reestablish our natural, coordinated way of breathing and learn ways to free and strengthen our breathing and voice.

Discussion | The Enduring Legacy of Shaker Design: From Maya Lin to Ikea


From Donald Judd's daybed to Virgil Abloh's Markerad Ikea chair, the enduring influence of Shaker design is undeniable. More than 250 years after a small Christian sect calling themselves Shakers sought refuge on American shores, their architecture and furniture continue to powerfully influence artists and collectors. From Donald Judd's daybed to Virgil Abloh's Markerad Ikea chair, the enduring influence is evident, with the Shaker aesthetic becoming a touchstone of American vernacular design. Speaker Linda Johnson is curator of Hancock Shaker Village. Speaker Jennifer Trainer Thompson is the museum's Director, and a founder of MASS MoCA. See link for COVID protocols.

Discussion | The Grasslands Birds of Freshkills Park (online)


Temperate grasslands are globally imperiled, suffering from habitat loss, land conversion, and lack of protection. Consequently, grassland birds are among the most substantially declining North American birds. Dr. Shannon Curley and José Ramírez-Garofalo will present findings from their work at Freshkills Park in Staten Island, a nearly 2,000 acre reclaimed landfill that has now become the home of various grassland specialists like Grasshopper Sparrows, Eastern Meadowlarks, and Sedge Wrens.

Author Reading | Volunteers: Growing Up in the Forever War (online)


For Jerad Alexander, military life was ingrained in the very psyche of his family. Long before 9/11, he was raised on masculine fantasies of heroism and patriotism, and as soon as he was old enough, he enlisted in the Marines, eager to fight and protect when he was deployed to Iraq. Once there, however, he learned that much of what he had spent his childhood dreaming about was a mirage.
