This conference calls for people, movements, organizations and collectives to present alternative accounts to the political dimensions of civic engagement, mutual aid and revolution as they relate to economics, politics, invention, technology, work, artistic and cultural production, the body, pedagogy and social change. The conference promises to create a provocative space for comparative critical dialogue between activists, revolutionaries, educators, artists, musicians, scholars, dancers, actors and writers. The conference invites panels and workshop on all aspects of social change from the revolutionary to the academic.

Co-sponsors

Hey friends. So just a quick update on the status of these pages and Ashanti's old Druppal site. I've had to update the software to the latest version, and since that stuff is pretty complicated, it's taking a while to do. For now I've put back up these pages from 2003, until we can get his new site going. Enjoy.
