Abolition Convergence 2020

The organizing committee for the 2020 Abolition Convergence invites you to come dream with us! In putting this event together we are inspired by the relationship between trees and mushrooms (mycorrhizae) where we see nature selecting the healthy relationships needed to bring about a mutually beneficial future across difference. Inspired by Anna Tsing’s research on these encounters blossoming into happenings – we invite each of you to join us in hopes that our relationships will advance movements and shifts that bring about the futures we dream of!
So come create, connect, explore and dream with us!
We will be open for proposals from September 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019 and welcome a wide range of artistic, activist, academic submissions!
We also encourage folks to submit proposals that will help to build our children and youth tracks!!
