Conceived and organized by Lorene Bouboushian, this Studies Project focuses on practicing intentionality around how social class shows up in our creative practices. It takes the form of a facilitated conversation with break-out sessions and share-outs.

Class exists as a lived concept, interwoven with race, disability, immigration, age, and gender. It is ever-present, utilized as a tool to maintain many other forms of oppression, yet carefully tiptoed around. Often, we define our class via our identity as artists. There is no single “artist class”--artists relate to class differently around the globe. So, as artists, how can we understand our different ways of relating to class through our life practices and creative choices, and move forward with more awareness around them?

Facilitation will focus on creating space where participants can actively share from personal experience and contribute to the conversation for the duration of the evening.

This event will take place at Movement Research's new home at 122 Community Center (122CC). 122CC is a fully ADA compliant facility. We're in the process of building our new floors and moving into the new space. Please consider helping us #buildthatfloor by contributing to our Indiegogo campaign here. We appreciate the support!
