Occupy Eugene a Stop on Last Friday Art Walk

Occupy Eugene a Stop on Last Friday Art Walk

Occupy Eugene is part of this month’s Last Friday Art Walk! So from 6-9 on November 25th (Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving) we will be an Art Walk stop with live music and arts galore at camp in Washington Jefferson Park.

If you would like to contribute art to the cause, please contact Dani: hendrickson.dani [at] gmail.com or Daniel: droque99 [at] gmail.com.

The event will be part of a larger campaign this Black Friday to break the chains of consumerism.  The Art Walk stop will take place along with “Buy Nothing Day” and Occupy the Mall on Black Friday.

In line with Buy Nothing Day Occupy Eugene is calling any artist to facilitate play-shops (workshops) during the day to give people an opportunity to make art with their family instead of taking part in mass consumption.

If interested, determine a time and place (either on the occupation site, or off the occupation site) to host a playshop.

We can help promote your play-shop (althoughhttp://occupyeugenemedia.org/wp-admin/post.php?post=7096&action=edit you should also self-promote to your web of family and friends). If you would like help with promoting the event, contact plaedo7 [at] gmail.com.
