Live Book Tickets

During this time of re-opening, we pause to experiment and reflect on what kinds of events, gatherings, and formats for being together we want to have moving forward. Join us for a public presentation, gathering, and skill-share with special guest Kevin Gotkin - researcher, activist, and party organizer from New York. In this session Kevin will share his experience in party-organizing that prioritizes ability and joy as a fundamental and transformative framework. Gotkin says ”We recognize and center those who know most about the systems that affect our lives: queer, trans, Black, Indigenous, disabled people of color.” Among other things, Gotkin will share his experiments in online platforms as hybrid venues for gathering. Co-presented with Simon(e) van Saarloos and Het HEM on the occasion of Chapter4OUR. The event will featuring a screening with special thanks to contributors to the JOY (Perspectives) program of our Melly TV series.

Available to attend in-person, or online.
