Umyuangvigkaq: PS122 Long Table and Durational Sewing Bee
Let's create a just and equitable world. Let's spend some good time together doing so. Let's chew our words, share them, listen. Let's be okay when we don't know. Let's be supple and brace in our questions and findings.
Umyuangvigkaq is a place to gather ideas. Here we will recognize and celebrate indigenous people, artists, art, methods, and audience. We will stitch together a quilt of conversation, ideas and fabrics. We will acknowledge indigeneity as we work to indigenize the performing arts world and the world at large.
Come with ready hearts. Come all day for a stitch. Every 2 hours we'll shift a conversation to a new critical topic engaging the intersections of the Indigenous with contemporary American culture. This durational sewing bee underpins a large-scale experiment in public engagement and sewing culminating in an all-night, outdoor performance event in 2017, Then a Cunning Voice and A Night We Spend Gazing at Stars, created by Emily Johnson/Catalyst.
