Drawing Together: Kingstonians talking about Class & Capitalism

20 Apr

WHAT: What does Class Oppression look like in Kingston? How do Class and Capitalism determine who has power, who makes decisions and who benefits in our town?

Join the germination’s collective for a lunchtime community conversation about class, capitalism and poverty. This will be a talk about personal experiences of class oppression. It will also identify the social and cultural conditions that create those experiences and the institutions that maintain injustice. Finally, it will call out the root causes and historical context which made class oppression a reality, on a large scale and in Kingston in particular.

The goal iis to have these conversations to better understand each others’ experiences, how class and capitalism function on a whole in Kingston, and to start thinking about what we can do to confront the capitalist system. ALL WELCOME!

A tasty and filling vegetarian lunch will be provided! This is a dry event. Drawing & art materials will also be on hand!
