Potato Markings with Nailah, LIVE
“Potato Markings,” is a hands-on potato stamp making workshop. This workshop is inspired by the concept of “leaving evidence” in Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice.
Disability Justice activist Mia Mingus emphasizes the importance of leaving evidence, “Evidence that we were here, that we existed, that we survived and loved and ached. Evidence of the wholeness we never felt and the immense sense of fullness we gave to each other. Evidence of who we were, who we thought we were, who we never should have been. Evidence for each other that there are other ways to live–past survival; past isolation.” (Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, 2018, p. 81)
In this workshop, multidisciplinary artist Nailah Taman will guide you in a stamp making activity to “leave evidence” through creating iconography and symbols that represent yourself and the world around you.
In conversation and with the input of HOBT staff and the MayDay Council, the HOBT Board of Directors has voted to sell the Avalon Theatre, our home since 1988.
As we rebuild from the impacts of COVID-19 we are right-sizing our organization. It’s time to find a new, smaller home that will allow us to live into our vision of a decentralized MayDay. That includes moving into a new space that is more sustainable and accessible.
