AWA Event: no. NOT EVER.
December 7 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Pacific Northwest College of Art, 511 NW Broadway, Portland Portland 97209
The Alliance of White Abolitionists (AWA) seeks to fuel connection among white people who are engaged to abolish white dominance from within the white community.
Join us as we visit the no.NOT EVER. multi-media installation pushing back at the rise of white nationalism in the current moment. Hosted by Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA), this video-centered “living archive” depicts a wide-range of rural and suburban organizing strategies from the 1980’s and 1990’s that say “no. NOT EVER.” to white nationalism in the Pacific Northwest. This exhibition is organized as a community-centered resource to support groups, individuals, and projects doing anti-racist and anti-fascist culture-building in their own ways and contexts.
