Presented in collaboration with CUE Art Foundation
November 16, 2018
The second session of Little Meat Up was co-presented with CUE Art Foundation, and featured artist, educator and filmmaker Melanie Crean, whose work explores systems of power and their representation.
This workshop, entitled Four Fates: Design Futuring Workshop, is a part of a series of “world building" experiments designed to help envision a near future in which New York City has a prevalent restorative justice system that reduces the number of detained New Yorkers in half, from 10 to 5,000.
The project is created in response to the de Blasio Administration / Lippman Commission report on closing the Rikers Island jail complex, in favor of 4 smaller, borough based jails. Our November 16th event was one of the first public events in Melanie's series of workshops, and will involve a number of “design futuring” exercises that explore what this New York City might look like 10 years in the future.
