Braid and Flow: Racialized Violence


Braid and Flow is a bimonthly convening that explore themes that stretch across scales and disciplines, such as food and food systems, racialized violence, and technology and intimacy. Our goal is to learn from each other, and to strengthen the theories and the practices that guide our work as artists, activists, researchers, policy makers, writers, scientists, designers, teachers, students, and leaders, all working to navigate the Anthropocene and the challenges of climate change and pandemic. If you are committed to sharing your own work and experiences, learning, and dialogue, please join us.


This month's topic is Racialized Violence. From 10:00AM to 11:00AM on Thursday, June 18, we will break into groups to explore this topic through these lenses: 1) Trees, 2) Tear Gas, and 3) Social Media.


We will meet again from 6 to 7:15 p.m. on Monday, June 22, and attempt to bring those strands back together through creative responses.


All are welcome to join for either or both gatherings. Afterwards, the leaders for the month will share out readings, resources, inspirations, and ideas and choose the next month's theme and discussion leaders.


We will announce the discussion leads in the days ahead.
