New York City, edition 1, Fall 2012
This list has been compiled collaboratively by members o the OWSArts & Labor Alternative Economies group to increase the visibilityo and access to existing cooperatively-owned resources and alter-native networks available to our community.Arts & Labor is a working group ounded in conjunction with theNew York General Assembly or #occupywallstreet. We are artistsand interns, writers and educators, art handlers and designers,administrators, curators, assistants, and students. We are all artworkers and members o the 99%.Arts & Labor is dedicated to exposing and rectiying economic in-equalities and exploitative working conditions in our elds throughdirect action and educational initiatives. By orging coalitions, ghting or air labor practices, and reimagining the structures andinstitutions that rame our work, Arts & Labor aims to achieve par-ity or every member o the 99%.The Alternative Economies subgroup o OWS Arts & Labor exploresnew methods or sustaining the livelihood o artists, art workers,and other low-income populations. We view the concept o laborthrough the lenses o time, choice, and value, and we research theways in which ideas such as the commons, solidarity economies,precarious worker centers, and participatory budgeting can nurturemore sustainable art worlds. Believing that vibrant creative com-munities come rom the bottom up, we encourage relationshipsbased on mutual aid rather than competition, and we advocate orcultural institutions rooted in a ramework o social, economic, andenvironmental justice.
