All Are Welcome: An Experiment in Living Society
June 2-14, 2015.
A partnership between Synapsis and Trajectory at The Ink People Annex in Old Town, Eureka, California
Conceived of and facilitated by Leslie Castellano
A 2-week installation to investigate the formation of experimental temporary societies. We will build our society together, creating costumes, sets, and props and using our engaged living bodies to inhabit the world that we are actively building. Three meals per day will be included. Participants may come and go as they like, but are invited to participate as much as they want.
All of the material we create will be collectively owned. The project will be documented along the way and will end with a final gathering celebration and then clean up. There will be additional components to the project: micro-lectures (art, social justice, sustainability, health) workshops/skillshares, dance party, sharing circles, gardening, writing/zine making etc.
Should we generate income from the project, the money will be shared according to time spent being in the space/participating…
And also, if you make something, you can do what you want with it.
Each participant will sign some simple agreement about mutual respect.
The entirety of this project is considered a performance. We are performing our being in the world: our beliefs, hopes, critiques, questions…
All are welcome: no one will be discriminated against on the basis of class, race, sexual orientation, religion, etc. Invite a friend! Let’s mix it up!!!!
Any of these above ideas can be modified, dismissed, reassembled, or added onto by the participants.
For more information or if you would like to participate or offer something during the time, contact Leslie: firstname.lastname@example.org 707-616-3104
