First 100 Days: United in Resistance
It's official: we in the United States have a terrible new rapist/racist president, filling cabinet positions with goons and villains and worse. More people than ever feel their lives are under threat, because they are. Since November I've been organizing with several of Portland's most committed and most fun artists/activists. We're ambitious in our efforts to bring together political education, skill sharing, community building, and creative response: take a gander at Educate + Agitate, our January 14/15 weekend of events at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art. Stay tuned to our website and FB to keep up with our activities.
Next event: January 28: Organize (Pacific Northwest College of Art)
BIO: Julie Perini makes experimental and documentary videos and films. Preoccupied with daily life, her short-form personal works are autobiographical, self-reflective, and expressive. Her documentary feature films are produced within and alongside contemporary social movements. She is co-director, with Jodi Darby and Erin Yanke, of the documentary feature film, Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon (2015) distributed by Collective Eye Films. You might like to treat yourself to a peak at her daily & monthly video project, the Minute Movies. One more cool thing about Julie: she is a backcountry guide with the arts/environmental organization Signal Fire.
