BREW & FORGE is an ongoing experiment in gathering writers, artists, organizers, and movement builders. Our mission is to amplify the collective power of writers to alchemize dreaming and build capacity in movements for liberation, justice, and survival. Taking to heart Gloria Anzaldúa and Cherrie Moraga’s assertion that change requires both “the witch and the warrior, the myth-smasher and the myth-maker,” Brew & Forge is a book fair, a lecture series, a retreat, and more.
Since 2016, we've mobilized over 200 authors to participate in our annual book fair and raised over $16k for the organizations leading our movements for liberation, justice, and survival.
The interdisciplinary Brew & Forge Lecture Series pairs writers and movement builders to speak on the future of our movements through the lens of action and the arts.
The Witches & Warriors retreat gathers 12 poets and organizers for three days of scheming, skill-sharing, and collective dreaming, with guidance from faculty mentors. Our inaugural retreat will be held in summer 2022.
