Sustainability Lab
May 1 - 8; June 3 -12, 2010

Transformer and Brooklyn-based cultural worker Jeff Hnilicka invite audiences to explore emerging models of cultural production, the sustainability of these models, and their impact within communities though a series of workshops, talks, skill shares, potluck dinners, and artistic actions. Discoveries made during Sustainability Lab will be shared at the Open Engagement conference in Portland, Oregon (May 14 - 17) exploring similar themes. Hnilicka will then be back at Transformer further investigating and interpreting outcomes of Open Engagement.
