Occupy Art Is @ Left Forum

Okay so it's actually Occupy Art will be at Left Forum in a couple of weeks from now as I find myself blogging this blog post and staring at this Left Form 2013 Mobilizing for the Ecological, nomic Transformation at Pace University, June 7-9 program booklet from last years Left Forum Conference. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 976. And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast, well sort of. And it seems as if I find myself posting on this blog whenever I can get one of those Occupy Art Shows to show up somewhere in that New York City area.  And so this time Occupy Art happens to be at an Occupy Art at a Left Forum Conference Panel May 30th - June 1st, 2014 at John Jay College of Criminal Justice with Carla Cubit - Occupy Art, Paul DeRienzo - Let Them Talk and Chris Flash - The Shadow. And that description of that event that finds itself posted in that flyer above and on that Facebook event invite reads something like as follows:

Hi Facebookers,

I will be presenting an Occupy Art Show panel with Paul DeRienzo of Let Them Talk and Chris Flash of The Shadow at Left Forum Conference at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Sunday June 1st, 3:40pm - 5:40pm for anyone who can make it by. There will be an Occupy Art open mic for all who wish to speak or perform. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.

Discussions of Occupy Art Shows that have taken place in and around New York City. Occupy Art is inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests. Occupy Wall Street artists and documenting artists mingle with other downtown voices and vibes to expand scope, perspective and inspiration towards an ongoing series of future culture jams around this theme and time and continue the discussion in a variety of media: painting, digital art, film, video and performances mediums at Occupy Art events. There will be a slide show presentation of Occupy artwork as well as Lower East Side, NYC Lower East Side Squat History

Looking forward...Get your tix now!

And those featured speakers at this event, well they seem pretty big I guess.  And that Left Forum description on its website describes itself as:
Left Forum is the culmination of the creative efforts of thousands of participants, panel and workshop organizers, and hundreds of volunteers who engage the gamut of conference organizing activities, from helping generate artistic events and panels, to outreach and involvement of a rainbow of organizations and individuals. The 2013 gathering involved 4,000 participants, more than 1,200 speakers and hundreds of panels, workshops, and events.  Left Forum conferences have included talks by Noam Chomsky, Arundhati Roy, Naomi Klein, Michael Moore, Cornel West, Bolivian Vice President Álvaro García Linera, Amy Goodman, Slavoj Zizek, Grace Lee Boggs, RoseAnn DeMoro, Cornel West, Chris Hedges, Marina Sitrin, M1, Nnimmo Bassey, Oliver Stone, and the Reverend Jesse Jackson.  

Looking forward to seeing you there. Occupy Art. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.
