$15,000 Grant for Activists of Color

Activists of Color Invited to Apply for Alston/Bannerman Fellowship Program
Deadline: December 1, 2006

The Alston/Bannerman Fellowship Program
( http://www.alstonbannerman.org/ ) is committed to advancing progressive social change by helping to sustain long-time activists of color. The program honors those who have devoted their lives to helping their communities organize for racial, social, economic, and environmental justice, and provides resources for organizers to take sabbaticals for reflection and renewal.

Each year, ten organizers of color are awarded the Alston/Bannerman
Fellowship and receive $15,000 to take sabbaticals of three months or more.

To qualify for an Alston/Bannerman Fellowship, an applicant must be a person
of color; have more than ten years of community organizing experience; be
committed to continuing to work for social change; and live in the United States or its territories.

Beyond the basic eligibility criteria, the Alston/Bannerman Program seeks
applicants whose work attacks roots causes of injustice by organizing those
affected to take collective action; challenges the systems that perpetrate
injustice and effects institutional change; builds their community's capacity for self-determination and develops grassroots leadership; acknowledges the cultural values of the community; creates accountable participatory structures in which community members have decision-making power; and contributes to building a movement for social change by making connections between issues, developing alliances with other constituencies, and collaborating with other organizations.

Both full-time and part-time or volunteer activists are eligible to apply.

Visit the Web site of the fellowship program for complete program details,
eligibility information, and application procedures.

Trying out flickr. I tried it a long time ago, it froze, i gave up. Here I go again. Let's see how it works.

karma art

Artist, lara stein pardo, is seeking some good karma artists to help deconstruct Tracked. Tracked is a performance installation piece which has been on view at the Art Center since July 4. There will be three more performances, and then I need to take this baby down. I'd really appreciate any help I can get with tearing it down, and hauling the materials away. In exchange, I can offer you some paint, some wood, good times, free parking, and of course, good karma.

Date: July 19, 2006
Time: 10 AM - it's done (the more people the better! and faster!)
Place: 924 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, FL, 33139, Art Center, 2nd Floor

Please RSVP to let me know what time you plan to arrive, what tools you are bringing, and what materials you'd like to reserve. I'll pay for your parking if you RSVP :)

Here are a couple of pictures of the piece:
