NYC 2019-08-17: My Body, My Home

“My body, my home” is an ACLU fundraiser organized in response to the recent passage of laws strictly limiting abortion rights in Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, and Ohio.
We invite the artists to explore the idea of personal autonomy and what it has meant to them- what does it mean to have the government give you “rights” over your own body? What does it mean when they are taken away? The event will be a series of dance and spoken word performances followed by a raffle, mingling, and lots of snacks.

The event is organized by queer contemporary dance project spacejunkdance. You can check out their webside at www.spacejunkdance.com or their instagram at @spacejunkdance.

Come join us at 5pm on Saturday, August 17th for food and drinks, good conversation, good art, and a good cause. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

Also, if anyone on here is interested in presenting any art they’ve been working on or adding something to one of our raffle baskets, let us know!
