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. Previously housed at Williams College, the series brought 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. When held in person, the speakers also taught writing/direct action organizing workshops to small groups of students, staff, faculty, and community members.


The first iteration of the series ran from 2019-2021. Contact if your school or organization would like to partner with us to run future events.
