What Does A Harm Free Zone Feel Like? Part II
Saturday, April 20, 2019
Join us on Saturday, April 20, 4:00-7:00PM for a speical performance and discussion. Mutual Aid Project – Marshall Trammell (percussion), Tracy Hui (banjo and electronics), Nick Obando (alto saxophone and electronics) – will be joined by solidarity economists, restorative justice and labor activists, and the general public to listen, translate and broaden practical applications of What Does A Harm Free Zone Feel Like? Part II in everyday practices.
This event is a part of Music Research Strategies’ Performing Political Education: Fighting Formations, a residency program inspired by the work of prison abolitionist organization Critical Resistance and their working framework of a “Harm Free Zone”, the historical process of building community autonomy and self-determination in the struggle to abolish the prison industrial complex, and to transform our ways of treating each other. The project will feature performances by Mutual Aid Project with guest musicians and other collaborators. It will explore collaboration, improvisation and making music together as a methodology for transforming our ways of being together and creating an emergent community-accountability framework.
