CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS - PTO

www.ptoweb.org Deadline Dec. 1, 2008

Mad as Hell? Now Move (or Draw, or Act…): Organizing for Social Justice @ PTO Gathering ‘09

What makes you mad? What injustices compel us to act? What are the success stories? How do we organize long-standing and sustainable changes for the good of our communities? How might we use problem- posing to address the conflicts that confront us? How do we navigate the spaces between the World As It Is and the World As It Should Be? The PTO Board and the Local Organizing Committee request proposals for interactive presentations, panels, performances, dialogues, and workshops that wrestle with our organizational mission: To challenge oppressive systems by promoting critical thinking and social justice.

Download info HERE and more details after the jump


In particular, we invite proposals that reflect participatory models
of engagements, that speak to broad audiences and cross borders of
environmental justice, immigrant rights, racial justice, growing
poverty and wealth, militarism and peace, and the other great issues
of our time; and that bridge academic work and community organizing.

Presentations might include:

Issues central to people of color and lower-income communities;
Case studies of organizing that effectively used the arts to address a
particular issue;
Workshops or discussions about the use of PO and TO in community
organizing;
Workshops, presentations and investigations into the practice of
Theatre of the Oppressed; the relation between Joker, actor and spect-
actor; and their potential to change people and institutions;
Proposals that prescribe or examine what happens after TO workshops:
in other words, how to move from theatre to action.
Dialogues between creative organizers and activist PTO artists;
Problem-posing and popular education;
Investigations, through PO or TO or related practices, into the nature
and causes of class relations, how they have come into existence, and
how they can be overturned;
Investigations into the use of dialogue, creative expression and
physical activity (movement) as tools for social and political
engagement.


Please note that proposals that model interactive critical engagement
will receive preference.

Local Organizing Committee: Charles Adams (University of Minnesota);
alejandra tobar alatriz (PTO board member, Grassroots Nonviolence);

office manager, University of Minnesota); Shannon Gibney (lead

Great post, you have pointed out some good points , I also think this s a very great website.

I think we want to convey our brand if we say anything online. and additionally, yes, that means to be extremely careful. It only takes a second for something distasteful to return and bite - maybe not today, but perhaps down the road.

Blog is good!:) Perhaps you learn me blog myself??

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
