“Upsurge: Rising Consciousness”
WHAT: The inspiration behind producing this event is to create a space for local artists, activists, and members of the community to come together, hangout and share experiences with each other. This month’s Upsurge will be focusing on the issue of public education. We have seen massive cuts to the educational budget, while government spending on wars and corporate bailouts remain on the rise. Anakbayan aims to educate our fellow youth regarding this attack on social services and inspire them to take on the fight for their right to free, quality, and liberating education.
Any art piece in line with the theme of enlightenment, empowerment and self-remolding is welcome.
WHEN: August 19, 2011; 7pm- 11pm
WHERE: Action 21
107-B Hutton St.
Jersey City, NJ

We hope you spend your last few days of summer with us, so we can all go back to school, inspired.
