“Some Freedom Now”: Liberatory Practice and Community—Building in the Face of Collapse

The title of this panel is taken from an influential 2018 essay by panelist Ed Whitfield titled “What Must We Do to Be Free? On the Building of Liberated Zones.” Whitfield, chef and food activist Neftali Duran, and RISD faculty and staff from the departments of Landscape Architecture, Sculpture and Counseling and Psychological Services discuss the future and how we can start building it now through new ecological, labor, artistic, mental health, and community care practices.
