RiVAL: the ReImagining Value Action Lab is pleased to host an open-house on Friday, October 13 from 5-7pm (followed by our regular Games of Empire social-justice board game night).

– Come see RiVAL’s facilities which exist to facilitate community meetings, research-creation collaborations, cooperative learning and audio/video production.
– This event is also the launch of RiVAL’s new VAGABONDS series and the first pamphlet in that series, RiVAL Director Max Haiven’s firey “Towards a Materialist Theory of Revenge: The Lives of Witches.” Haiven will introduce the series and read from the text.
– The artist Cassie Thornton, RiVAL research-creation associate, will also discuss her Feminist Economics Yoga project, which offers ‘free’ yoga classes on Tuesdays at noon at RiVAL (starting September 12).

* This is a casual drop-in event. The formal talk portion will be from 5:30-6pm
* Attendees are warmly invited to stay afterwards and join us for our Games of Empire board game night.
* People of all ages are welcome to attend.
* RiVAL is a scent-free zone.
* RiVAL is sadly not a barrier-free space. There are about 20 steps between the accessible areas of PACI and the lab.
