Future Relations Self Defense Night

Thursday, December 5th, 6–9pm
SOMArts, 934 Brannan St.

Future Relations: A Resource for Radical Teaching presents F.T.P. is the first exhibition of SOMArts 2019-20 Curatorial Residency season. With a combined 30 years of teaching experience, curators Fred Alvarado, Thomas Jones, and David Petrelli reimagine SOMArts’ Main Gallery into a site for collective liberation and hope for educators, community organizers, and youth alike. 

Critically engaged teachers work collaboratively with young people in confronting and subverting systemic oppression. Through an Ethnic Studies, social justice oriented lens, Future Relations offers alternatives to traditional models of education by presenting works that underscore the importance of experiential knowledge and community cultural wealth.

Future Relations will be hosting free, all ages Self Defense speaker series at SOMArts Cultural Center on Thursday, December 5th, 6–9pm. These discussions are dedicated to self and collective perseverance through art, humor, and body movement.
