Writing On it All: Mariame Kaba “Community Safety Looks Like: Transforming Justice and Our Relationships”

June 11 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| Free
unnamed (14)

Join organizers Darian Agostini, Mariame Kaba and Reign Rolon for an immersive experience focused on imagining community safety and transformative justice. Participants will discuss how the prison industrial complex devastates our communities and why we need to build a world without prisons, policing and surveillance.

Writing On It All is a participatory writing project open to all interested members of the public. In sessions led by artists and writers, participants are invited to write on the interior surfaces of an out-of-use house – and no two sessions are alike. Facilitators and session members take to the walls to write, attending to the dynamics of writing as well as to pressing issues of the day. Poets, street artists, activists, choreographers, domestic workers, as well as professional writers and artists lead experiments dealing with diverse topics, using all kinds of materials, including music and projection, charcoal and chalk, pencil and paint. Everything counts as writing.
