Cut Fruit Circle+Organizing 101
2 – 4PM
Cut Fruit Circle+Organizing 101 Workshop
Asian American women and femme artists/care/cultural workers in the DC metro area are invited to join socially engaged artist organizer Adele Kenworthy and community organizing nonprofit Rising Organizers to participate in our first collaborative art+community organizing workshop at Transformer gallery.
We’ll gather to cut fruit for one another while also learning the basics of organizing, building community power and creating a movement.
Be with us as we explore and experiment how to practice a future we want to live and what it means to gather, rest, and to organize with cut fruit and community.
