IMC Fest is a three-day event taking place the same
weekend as the Boneyard Arts Festival.
April 18th at 12PM:
“We Who Believe in Freedom Cannot Rest: cross generational
voices on building social justice movements.” A
cross-generational roundtable discussion on building
social justice movements and strategies: This panel discussion,
moderated by Books to Prisoners, will include
youth and adult representation from Tamms Year Ten,
The Education Justice Program, CU Citizens for Peace
and Justice, The Campaign for Comprehensive Sex Ed,
and the Uni High Social Advocacy class. We will focus
on subjects such as: successful strategies for mobilization,
the driving force for social justice organizations,
and the personal experiences of individuals. Along with
the roundtable discussion, original works of art donated
by inmates from Danville Correctional Center will be
available for viewing and purchasing with the proceeds
going to Books to Prisoners. Join us for conversation.

4.) Clara Hoag—From sex to saints and their artifacts,
art, women, children, money, and commodities,
we place power in that which is unknown, misunderstood,
unattainable, or changing. I focus my work on
this fetish trend. When I work, I think of martyrs,
saints, the power of faith, censorship, abjection, mechanization,
and spirituality. I’m intensely influenced by
African art, art history and religion, and I consider my
pieces to be representations of misunderstanding and
miscommunication. The physical and occasionally violent
nature of my work lends itself to a reconsideration
of what it means for an object to have power, and how
that power can be destructive, subversive.
5.) “Urban(a) Visions” by Danielle Chynoweth
