Interested in being a part of it? Here's how!
Run a workshop. Workshops are food for the brain, body, or soul, and can be on anything from screenprinting to Standing Rock, decompression strategies to anti-displacement. What do you want to learn? What do you want to share?
Build a cohort. This is an opportunity for us to strengthen our collaboration muscles and build a cohort of people -- Somervillians, artists, old timers, crafty folks, educators, hipsters, and activists of all stripes -- to reach across boundaries and help to lift each other up.
Intergenerational. If you've been around the block and have seen all this a million times -- or if you're just-recently-not-a-kid and are terrified out of your mind - we want your perspective and your voice. CITS, Full Circle cohort, youth leaders, and youth organizers: you especially are invited!
Somerville local (and Cambridge, and Medford, and Arlington, you too!) Occupation, privatization, state-sanctioned violence, displacement, and disruption of everyday life: Trump didn't invent these things. Likewise, strategies for creative resistance, non-engagement, and grassroots solution have been happening right here at home for decades.
We're looking for people to organize sessions for the day, from one to two hours each. We're hoping to have a session of each of these types running at a time:
- 1 crafts-oriented
- 1 "learn about this"
- 1 brainstorm-oriented
- downtime -- for "taking a break"
- 1 for young people (various ages)
- accessible to teens, best facilitated by teens (any good workshop should be accessible)
