Radical Discipline: Exploring the Reasons Children Are Punished, and Alternative Suggestions

Saturday, June 16, 2018
3pm-4:30pm

RESCHEDULED FOR JUNE 16: Radical Playdate presents an open and personal caregiver discussion about disciplining and punishing children—is there ever a need to punish children?

From Below: Poetry and Social Justice II

Thursday, May 31, 7pm

How do we make the world we want to live in? How does art help us re-imagine social and political reality? We want to answer these question by exploring the places where poetry and political activism intersect — and, maybe just as crucially, interrogating places where they don’t. From Below is a poetry and discussion series that aims to get this conversation started. Join Interference Archive for a public reading and discussion on intersections of poetry and labor organizing with Mark Nowak of the Worker Writers School, members of Retail Action Project, and local community college students and retail workers. The reading will be proceeded by a writing workshop for local community college students who work in retail or service industries.

The Next Epoch Seed Library has reimagined your typical seed bank in the face of climate change; their library collects plant species that live in close association with humans, but that have not been planted or maintained purposefully; in short, weeds! Join Interference Archive and the Next Epoch Seed Library on Saturday, June 2nd for an afternoon weed walk through Gowanus. Interested in walking with us? RSVP to info@interferencearchive.org so we can share details on our starting point for the walk.

An Agitprop Scavenger Hunt

Tuesday, June 5, 7-9pm

Our upcoming exhibition, Educate Agitate Organize!, looks at several different facets of the creation of agitprop. One thing we’re excited to explore is the way that the same symbols are reused across time and place by various movements, as acts of solidarity, as a way to create identity, and to communicate similar or disparate messages. We want you to help us explore this! Join us on June 5 for an agitprop scavenger hunt. We’ll give you a short list of symbols to hunt for, and we’ll provide an orientation on how to find material in the archive. Then it’ll be your turn to explore and see what you can find!
