ARTISTS AND TEACHERS IN LOS ANGELES (call for ideas, August 15) / by Bear Guerra


Via Women’s Center for Creative Work:

“WCCW is now taking proposals for workshops, discussions, projects, and performances to take place during the Fall (September–November) of 2019!

This fall we’ll be presenting programs on WORK & LABOR, in conversation with the work of our fall artist in residence, Ahree Lee. We’re looking for programs — talks, workshops, discussions, performances, immersive experiences, screenings, etc. — that address labor that is visible and invisible, compensated and uncompensated, creative, technical, intellectual, conceptual and/or emotional.

Where is the boundary between work and leisure? What places and spaces do we think of as workplaces? How is invisible labor made visible? How is labor gendered, queered, and/or racialized? What labor is valued and compensated, and why? And how do we think about our labor — and our time — outside of colonial, patriarchal, and/or capitalist frameworks? These are some of the questions we’re thinking of — feel free to propose your own!

These programs will be offered during September, October, and November 2019.”

DEADLINE: August 15.
