Rooted in Blackness Faculty
Please note we will be adding additional faculty after the new year!
MARZ & AMY
Marz Saffore and Amy Weng are members of MTL+, the artist collective which both founded and facilitates Decolonize This Place. Decolonize This Place is an action oriented movement centered around six strands of struggle: Indigenous struggles, Black liberation, Free Palestine, de-gentrification, dismantling patriarchy, and global wage workers.
"Movements Keep Moving: Abolitionist and Decolonial Organizing In Our Cities"
In this workshop, we will discuss the successes, failures, and lessons learned in abolitionist and decolonial movements, specifically focusing on our experiences in New York City. We will present our "Decolonial Operations Manual: Study, Reflection, Action," a forward-looking zine which traces the work of Decolonize This Place alongside our close collaborators and comrades. Then, we will open up the conversation to hear and learn from others who may have offerings for the space.
