Read to Resist: Weeks 48, 49, & 50

Whether you’re sheltering in place or marching in the streets; creating art or teaching;  parenting or healing, we urge you to read up and spread knowledge and solidarity to those around you.

We at C&R and at Pangea World Theater believe that cultural resistance to the profound violence around us (economic, military, racial, sexual etc) is imperative. Context, analysis and critical thinking are key elements to resisting injustice, as is the art that inspires, delights  and pushes us towards empathy and the creation of more humane and sustainable models for our communities and environment. Read to Resist is a curated bi-weekly reading/viewing/listening list to give us some of that context and inspiration. So whether you’re sheltering in place or marching in the streets; creating art or teaching;  parenting or healing, we urge you to read up and spread knowledge and solidarity to those around you.
