Public Research Session/PRELUDE Pre-Festival Kickoff

This event is taking place on Sunday, September 22 from 2-6pm at the Invisible Dog Art Space.

The Brooklyn Commune Project is a grassroots initiative organized by Culturebot.org and The Invisible Dog Art Center to educate, activate and unify performing artists of all disciplines to work together towards a more equitable, just and sustainable arts ecology in America. The project’s goal is to create an artist-driven vision of a healthy arts ecosystem in America and to bring artists, institutions, administrators and funders together for mutually respectful, open, non-hierarchical discourse around difficult topics such as resource allocation, capital, value, labor, aesthetics and quality of life.

In collaboration with PRELUDE.13, this pre-festival kickoff event will include a “long table” format open discussion featuring artists and thinkers leading a dialog about the intersection of aesthetics and economics in the performing arts. We invite all artists and audiences to join us for drinks and conversation to launch PRELUDE.13.

Collaborating Artists: Shonni Enelow (moderator), Andy Horwitz, Risa Shoup, Carla Peterson, Clyde Valentine, Gelsey Bell, Michael Silverstone, Abigail Browde, Annie Dorsen, and Arthur Aviles.

Upcoming for The Brooklyn Commune: Brooklyn Commune Global Congress, November 22-24, 2013 at The Invisible Dog.
