Lab 2, New York Hall of Science (NYSCI)

This session will feature two presentations:

Artistic Intervention in the Legal Contract
How can the most basic legal exchange – The Contract – be reinvigorated to create long term rather than short term ‘change’ models for: activists, artists and social entrepreneurs. The presentation will outline how individuals in the past have used contracts to secure sustainable social change. Alternative contract models used by artists will be presented so that institutions, museums, non-for profits and individual change makers can reconsider the role of the law in sustainable activism.

The Sylvia Rivera Law Project and the intersections of trans justice & prison justice
How do we center TGNCI liberation in the fight for abolition? Staff & collective members of the Sylvia Rivera Law Project facilitate a dialogue about centering TGNCI folks that are incarcerated in the struggle for liberation. Grounding on practices that lift up the art, writing, and movement work of SRLP’s members behind the wall. SRLP will share strategies and resources on how to support TGNCI people on the inside and how to movement build through art and writing to support abolition.
