“The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible.”

​–​

Toni Cade Bambara

In that spirit, we are writing to invite your participation at an exciting Symposium on Sat, Feb 24 from 10am-6pm titled Artists Dismantling Capitalism to be held at 212 G Street in Old Town Eureka.

This Symposium will be highly participatory, and is an effort to bring together artists, culture workers, social change agents and anyone and everyone who knows that we can collectively create a society that is loving, compassionate, inclusive and beautiful.

It is being sponsored by Cooperation HumboldtSocieties for Poetic Action and Synapsis, with collaboration from LOTS of other awesome community groups.
