where we are now: activism today

Dang. 2008 is off to a bangin’ start. There are so many interesting events coming up in the next week or two, I don’t think I can even hit’em all!

The Activist Imagination project is heating up: the next of their panel discussions is this Tuesday evening. The blog for the project is especially insightful. I’ll prolly roll on over to the Jan 22 panel discussion after my first day of class at USF (I’m teaching Filipino Arts again there), assuming I’m not totally shattered. Maybe even if I am shattered. I’m pretty disappointed that I missed the first panel, as it is…would be sad to miss others.
Join Kearny Street Workshop and a panel of activists, artists, and organizers for a discussion about the present state of activism, the arts and community.
The panel features San Francisco School Board member Eric Mar, National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights Program Director Diana Pei Wu, artist-activist and founding member of Eastside Arts Alliance Favianna Rodriguez, and activist and co-founder of Liberation Ink Le Tim Ly, and is moderated by community artist Robynn Takayama, and will examine, explore, and challenge the state of activism today.

Where We Are Now: Activism Today, is the second in a series of discussions that is part of KSW’s Activist Imagination program exploring the past, present, and future of arts and activism. Activist Imagination also features an exhibition of new work developed by three lead artists, Bob Hsiang, Donna Keiko Ozawa, and Christine Wong Yap, responding to and exploring the themes raised in the program. The visual exhibition opens Friday, February 29th, 2008, at KSW’s space180.
