Like the Waters, We Rise: Climate Justice in Print, pt.1

November 21st, 2019–April 17th, 2020
Opening event: November 21st, 6–9pm
This part of this exhibition is not at Interference Archive

Artists have long been at the heart of this movement, finding bold, inspiring ways to help uplift struggles, reveal connections between climate and intersecting issues, build public support, and paint a picture of the world we are working to create. Like the Waters, We Rise tells the story of this expansive climate justice movement through a collection of print-based works developed as part of—or inspired by—occupations, direct actions, and mass mobilizations. Taken together, these works show the many terrains of struggle, points of intervention, and solutions of this continually expanding movement of movements.

CR-NYC-Holiday Party

Critical Resistance NYC Holiday Card Writing Party

Sunday December 8, 1 PM to 4 PM

Every year in the wintertime, Critical Resistance New York City sends a note of solidarity, hope, and encouragement to 1,500+ of our comrades that are currently locked up in jails, detention centers, and prisons on the east coast. This year, we invite you to join us at Interference Archive to send cards across the walls to our people!

It is our hope that together we can get notes to all of our contacts and continue to strengthen our relationships as one piece of reducing the isolation of imprisonment. All are welcome and no prior letter writing experience is needed. We will have snacks and other materials to share in addition to card writing supplies – and we hope to see you there!
