Art, Joy and Utopian Imagination

za 1 feb, 2020 : 17:00 - 18:15

“We did it. We shifted the paradigm. We rewrote the meaning of life with our living. And this is how we did it. We let go.” – Alexis PaulineGumbs

Done with dystopia? Let go. And then let go again. Join Fossil Free Culture NL for a panel on the joy to be found in shifting the paradigm, and art as a vital necessity to imagine other possible futures. The panel is not a panel. Though there will be talking. You might even find yourself sharing words at some point. Join, discuss and let go! Please read these texts in advance to increase collective joyfulness:

  • Audre Lorde – ‘Poetry is not a Luxury’ – essay
  • Alexis Pauline Grumbs – ‘Evidence’ – short fiction
  • Climbing PoeTree – performance
  • Opal Palmer Adisa – ‘The Living Roots’ – short fiction
  • Dilman Dila – ‘The Healer’ – short fiction
