Submit your stories of “Inclusive Creativity” to the 2017 Library as Incubator Projectby Erinn Batykefer on Feb 21, 2017 • 10:00 am No Comments
We at believe libraries are a place to connect and create.
We are a small group (three of us build, maintain, and run the Library as Incubator website and our social media channels as an ongoing volunteer project), but we are committed to using the tools we have to do everything we can to fight back against this disturbing trend.
The moral of the story is representation matters. And we can make a difference.
- We want to see features that highlight creativity, art, performance, and making in the library space, or through library sponsorship, support, and partnership.
- We want to see programs and initiatives with a clear goal of engaging, supporting, and unifying marginalized groups that are in danger post-election. These groups include but are not limited to: queer communities, POC communities, non-Christian communities, immigrant communities, disabled people, and women.
- We want to see artist features and program submissions from artists, librarians, and other community organizers who identify as a member of a marginalized group.
- We want features with faces that are diverse and impacts that aim toward social justice, inclusivity, education, and tolerance.
