Thank you for your continued support and participation with Cooperation Humboldt. Together, we are proving that we can build a local economy that puts people and planet before profit.Today we are thinking about the powerful words of African-American author, film-maker, and college professor Toni Cade Bambara who famously said, “The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible.”
It is in that spirt that we invite you to attend the 3rd annual Artists Dismantling Capitalism Symposium happening on Saturday, February 29 from 9:00am – 5:30pm at the Arcata Playhouse, located at 1251 9th St in Arcata (The Creamery Building).
This event is highly participatory and brings together artists, culture workers, and anyone who knows that we can collectively create a society that is loving, compassionate, inclusive and beautiful.
The day will begin with an Opening Session that includes an interactive performance that imagines shifting from an extractive economy to a regenerative one. Throughout the day 16 participatory workshops will be facilitated by artists, community members and others.
Vegan lunch is included.
Childcare will be provided on request with at least 5 days notice prior to event. Please note in your registration form if you will be needing childcare.

Donations to help us cover the costs of the conference are appreciated, but not required.
We also want to invite you another upcoming workshop:
The Whiteness Within: Challenging White Supremacy Culture
, which will be offered on Saturday, February 15 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm
at The Labor Temple, located at 840 E Street in Eureka.This theatre-based workshop is inspired by “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism” by Robin DiAngelo and will give participants a chance to recognize how white supremacy culture shows up in their own lives, and provide an opportunity to practice confronting and challenging those behaviors.
