We are at a pivotal moment of CRIsis.   We take seriously the cultural and political moment in which we find ourselves–a worldwide crossroads we’ve not seen for decades.

We think the solution is to ask better questions, to learn from those who’ve mobilized in the past, to read relevant books, and to invite the perspectives of the artistic visionaries among us.

We host events, lectures, educational courses, artistic experiences—anything that creates a “cafe culture” where we can openly discuss cultural concerns, as well as explore often-unconscious binaries and prejudices.

We are interested in concrete actions, theories, events, and dialogues that raise public awareness.
