Subject: Art and Activism!!!!! yay

I don’t know about you, but I really want to see the art world come together to work on political issues- we have been far too divided- and it’s time we come together and make some good, social and political art!!!

WHO? Visual artists, writers, musicians, dancers, actors, etc. who are involved with or interested in social activism!

WHAT? An organization that will combine progressive political ideas with art!

WHERE? For now E. Quad Madrigal Lounge

WHEN? 3:00 Saturday, March 6 (please feel free to e-mail me if you cannot make this time and we can talk about alternatives in the future)

HOW? By pooling our creativity, resources, passion and frustration and putting them towards an active social movement.

please come with ideas and discussion! Some ideas that I was thinking about:
~Culture Jamming
~Performances/Gallery openings around Ann Arbor (both school and community affilliated)
~ University mural painting
~Being a resource for other progressive movements on campus that need some artistic aid!
