Story Share and Community Conversation

Safe Harbors of the Hudson 111 Broadway, Newburgh, NY

Join us for this story-share and community conversation about the history—and present—of girls and women’s incarceration. How can communities understand and support the needs of self-identifying young women and their families today? Can we reformulate and reclaim the language used over time to define and confine youth? Feminist oral historian Sady Sullivan will guide us in deep listening and we will hear from women who were confined at the New York State Training School for Girls (1904–1975) when they were teens, along with young women today. This event is part of the free public programming around the exhibition at Ann […]

Touch / Don’t Touch: Dis/Course with Gabrielle Civil

Online NY

How do we navigate the imperatives of touch? The edges of bodies? The possibilities within constraints? In our virtual encounter, we will touch ourselves, texts, and perhaps even each other with consent and care. Here, touch will encompass the tactile, the energetic, and the ancestral as sites of exploration. Recognizing the weightiness of touch (+ the impact of recent touch starvation), we will prioritize pleasure and positive touch: touch as a means for creativity, self-knowledge, and re/generation. Wear clothes that you might want to stroke, bring sweets for your mouth, surround yourself with objects to handle or hold in your […]
