THIS IS HOW WE DO IT A Festival of Dialogues about another world /// /// under construction
Friday, April 20 at 7p in The Great Hall GRACE LEE BOGGS in conversation with ANDREA SMITH and NELSON JOHNSON moderated by AMY GOODMAN Saturday & Sunday Afternoons in The Rose Auditorium
Show-and-Tell presentations from South Africa, Argentina, Brazil and throughout the US There are people and communities all across the world who are no longer waiting for the systems around them to change, who are engaged in alternative practices right now -- in the workplace, in politics, in public safety initiatives, in media and communications, in new economic systems and more. This year Foundry Dialogues will feature the practices and experiences -- the how -- of some of these remarkable innovators. In our lifetimes, in these times, how do we realize a more just, democratic, sustainable way of life? This is how we do it.
It features presentations from members of Brazil's Movimento Sem Terra and the Brazilian Solidarity Economy Forum, The South African Shackdwellers' Movement (Abahlali baseMjondolo), La Vaca (an Argentinian communicationscooperative) as well as seasoned elders and newer organizers from throughout the US and the city.
