Sherrie Andre and Arely Diaz-Loza (of FANG Collective), in conversation with poet Brenda Shaughnessy, January 2020
THE BREW & FORGE LECTURE SERIES
puts poets and political organizers in conversation to exchange perspectives and alchemize collective dreaming. Housed at Williams College, the series brings 2-3 speakers to present on their work, followed by a panel in which they discuss the intersecting roles of activism and the arts in envisioning the future of social justice movements. In previous in-person events, speakers also taught writing/direct action organizing workshops to small groups of students, staff, faculty, and community members.
