Gateway artists are Makers.

Consisting of weaving, ceramics, fabric, and folk art, Gateway Makers is a highly eclectic showcase of the dynamic work made in the Gateway studios.

The exhibition highlights the distinct style of each artist.

From the delicate stitched embroideries of Yasmin Arshad and Sidney Perry, to the boldly modeled clay owl by Barbara Brown and the playful papier-mâché banjo by Charles Hurvitz, the works shine with unique expression.

Location: 678 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA

For More Information: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mutual-aid-in-puerto-rico-tickets-96479261067?aff=ebdssbdestsearch

The Hurricanes of 2017 and the Earthquakes of 2020, brought to the islands of Puerto Rico natural disasters which became catastrophes due to the mismanagement and corruption of the local and federal governments.

Today, as people recover from hundreds of earthquakes and aftershocks, causing devastating material and psychological trauma only two years after natural and political disaster of Hurricane María, the network of mutual aid centers was ready to act immediately and meet the needs of their communities. Using a group chat created after Hurricane María, the CAMs (centros de Apoyo Mutuo) have identified needs, located sources for aid and supplies, coordinated brigades and the distribution of aid, and communicated with the Puerto Rican diaspora with what and where to send support. This kind of rapid response and coordination would not have been possible without the network Red de Apoyo Mutuo (Network of Mutual Support) formed after María. Functioning from the lens of mutual aid and solidarity, the network is another living example that the Puerto Rican people are organized and, with proper resources and autonomy, the most equipped to support each other.

A new culture of solidarity is being built.

The fissures created after catastrophes in the management of emergencies by the state, can create conditions for breaks in the hegemony of our colonial state and permit for new structures of governance and power. These are much needed exercises of autonomous action and organizing which inform practices and ideas of future alternatives to the organization of the state and society.

Come join them at Partnership Loft for a discussion with leaders from Agitarte to discuss this topic!
