collaborations + organizing

My intentions in organizing various spaces and with people aligns with the framing provided by Arianna Howard et al (2016) in their article on Black feminist gathering spaces – spaces that are “relational, fluid, and directly shaped by the experiences of race, class, gender, and sexual orientation within social contexts…” sites in which I can also, as they do, “[share] stories of the past and narratively illustrating our everyday experiences by eliciting commentary and feedback from fellow sharers of the space. What matters to our discussion, then, is both the space as we create it, as well as the place in which it occurs.”
