I am seeking your submission to a publication that will be included in a radical reading during NYC Freize Week in May 2017, tentatively called Tool Book. This will be a compilation of the texts, images and objects that edify, inspire, support and radicalize us in this time of deep uncertainty and resistance. Taking inspiration from the Whole Earth Catalog and it’s emphasis on “access to tools” that elevate the “power of the individual to conduct his [their] own education, find his [their] own inspiration, shape his [their] own environment, and share his [their] adventure with whoever is interested…” it will be sourced from you, members of a dynamic, creative community; and organized into one or more “catalogs.” Tool Book will be available for purchase with all profits going to support organizations that lift up and protect our most threatened communities and values. These include the ACLU, Black Lives Matter, Callen-Lorde, Sylvia Rivera Law Project and Sane Energy Project.
I invite you to submit materials for this project. My request is open to your broadest interpretation.
Some things that might be included:A meaningful text. A radicalizing text. An edifying text. A soothing text. A poem. A photo of the cover of an important text. A drawing of a person or thing that supports you, cares for you, inspires you. A photo of a person that motivates you. A design object, idea or quote. Song lyrics. Still from a film. A collage. A work of art. A photo of the view out of your window. Any image, drawing, photo, scan or other representation of a powerful tool.
To SUBMIT:-Complete this form.-Send 1-5 images/pages, roughly 8” x 10” and 300 dpi (or the highest quality you can gather) as a jpeg to email@example.com. You can send files as a google drive link or via Box or DropBox if they are too big. (All images/texts will be printed in black and white.)
DEADLINE: Monday, March 20th 11:59pm
