Put Down Roots with Interference Archive

Interference Archive is moving, building, and growing–and we really need your support to make our new, long-term home a reality.
In August, we received a notice that Interference Archive had to vacate its current space by September 1 because the building we call home had sold. We had anticipated that a move was on the horizon, but suddenly we were faced with the immediate need for a new space. Fortunately, we found an amazing storefront rental on 7th Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and we have signed a long-term lease.

Closed for September

Interference Archive will be closed for the month of September while we move to our new location. Our plan is to re-open in early October, please stay tuned and stay in touch for exact dates.

We’re moving!!

We have some exciting, important news: WE’RE MOVING!
Just under a month ago we were presented with what felt like a challenge but now feels horizon-expanding—a notice to vacate our current space effective September 1, 2017. Our building had been sold.
What does this mean?
We’ve lucked out and negotiated a long-term lease on a storefront space just three blocks from our current location, off 5th Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn. We’ll have a storefront. More room. More accessibility. And a long-term home (we have a 10 year lease!).

Take Back the Fight: Resisting Sexual Violence from the Ground Up

PLEASE NOTE: This exhibition will be ending earlier than originally planned, and the last day in our current space is Sunday, September 3.  After a break to allow us to concentrate on the archive’s move, Take Back the Fight will re-open in our new space.  Stay tuned for more details.

Reading Group: The New Jim Crow

Starts August 12
Come read with us! A few of us have decided to spend some time reading together over the coming weeks at Interference Archive. We’ve decided to focus on The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander, because we thought this would be a great book to have people to talk about with — whether you’re reading it for the first time, or for a second (or third?!).

We’re coming at this discussion not as experts, but as people who love to learn and who hope to learn from the others who come to this group. We’ll also work together to find related material in the Interference Archive collection for us to read if we choose; participants are encouraged to suggest related articles, podcasts, and books for others to check out as we go along.

Interference Archive Block Party

Saturday, September 2, 2pm – 6pm

We’re bringing back the block party!  Join us on September 2 for food, music, screen printing, button making, and other activities.

Film Screening: Eat Your Children

Saturday, August 19, 7pm

Join us for a screening of Eat Your Children followed by a conversation with filmmaker Treasa O’Brien.

Eat Your Children is a provocation, an inside-out activist film, a film that attempts to document the invisible. It is a road-trip quest by two friends who emigrated from Ireland during the financial crash of 2008 and who have now returned to probe Ireland’s so-called acceptance of debt and austerity.

Individual and Community Self-Defense Workshop

Saturday, August 19, 1-3pm

As part of the current Take Back the Fight: Resisting Sexual Violence from the Ground Up exhibition, Interference Archive is partnering with the Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE) to host a Peer Educator Self-Defense Workshop. Youth Peer Educators from CAE will lead an exciting and participatory self defense workshop. In this workshop, participants will learn how to protect themselves using physical self defense techniques, the power of their voice, and engaging in activism. This workshop is open to girls, transyouth, women, and LGBTQ+ identified folks and is limited to 20 participants. If you would like to participate, please RSVP.

Summer Radical Playdates!

Saturday, August 12, 2017
1pm–3pm

Radical Playdate has been in full effect since February 2017. So far, we’ve made a zine, we made stencil graphics, created a growing resource list of music and storybooks, and we even had a little music protest parade. Now, we’d like to talk more about how we can make Radical Playdate more “radical,” and to expand our all-ages community. If you’ve been thinking of showing up, now is the time to do that!
