Bi-weekly research group
Meeting on Saturday or Sunday, TBD
Dec 5, Dec 19, Jan 9, Jan 30, Feb 13, Feb 27
Organized by Sara Drake ︎ & Nina Sarnelle ︎
Many cultural workers are precarious and don’t have a 401K. Many are in debt and financial planning for the future is out of reach. Many have complex relationships to their biological family with no plans to make children of their own, instead building their own chosen kinships. This research project starts from the premise that US society does not provide adequate support for the elderly. How might we collectivize around meaningful mutual aid? How might we form a community for our future(s) with aging in mind based on shared values and critical, creative engagement? Together, we will gather resources and host conversations around alternative ways of planning for old age with a focus on cooperative structures.
