PLANS AND ORGANIZING FOR FALL 2013
It has been decided that KPW will be meeting weekly next semester as a collective group. It will be priority that the spaces we meet in are accessible to all students and safe.
All Purchase students and anyone involved with Purchase College is welcome to join the collective and attend meetings.
It is important that as advocates of cultural and social change as well as artistic preservation there is no oppressive attitudes or language expressed or tolerated in the spaces we meet. This means there will be no use ofsexist/misogynistic, transphobic, queerphobic, racist, and ableist attitudes and language. Furthermore, these meetings will be alcohol and drug free to further ensure safety.
As advocates of weird, we as a collective must make sure we are fostering safe and comforting spaces to inspire and empower.
Our first priority will be organizing for “stoodapalooza” which “ will be a really big fair to promote purchase culture…that is separate from the official club fair, which is run by cocoas. That club fair has a table for every club on campus and people just pick up pamphlets and stuff. The stood fair will only feature a handful of clubs in a more participatory way, through performances and stuff” (Megan Manowitz, stood coordinator for 2013) to boost promotion!
Our next initiative will be to take back the co-op!
Ideas about initiatives you’d like to see go down this year with KPW can be posted in the KPW ask or on our facebook page, or anywhere you can get your hands on.
