“The Movement must be fly” - Amber J. Phillips
Liz Manne
01:40:19
artist’s work is labor, too - great, Prentiss, that you will be providing those mini-grants
Renee Fazzari
01:41:01
Snaps Prentiss!
Amber Phillips
01:41:08
Like that scene in Space Jam!
Josh Clark
01:41:25
That's a critical distinction and critical knowledge about what moves young people
Renee Fazzari
01:43:49
Hi all! Please put questions into chat if you have them! We will have just a bit of time at the end here to answer them.
Jenny Flanagan
01:43:51
Not mention the impact this will have on the existing work in our field more broadly
Renee Fazzari
01:44:32
Yes Jenny! There’s so much for organizing and cultural organizing to learn from each other
Tanya Coke
01:45:01
Hi Prentiss and Amber - can you please say which influencers (meaning marquee name types) you have lined up to engage on these three campaigns?
Josh Clark
01:45:04
And not to mention that beyond building future leaders it builds the progressive "bench" (so to speak) for future elected officials
Patrick Moreno-Covington
01:45:34
can you discuss what the collaboration between the three different orgs MLC, OSA and AYO looks like?
Rebecca Petzel
01:46:15
Tanya, I also think Stevie can talk about their relationship to Chance the Rapper in Chicago as an example of a relationship
Brigid Hall
01:46:35
You talk about youth being co-creators in the development of narratives. How else do they exert their leadership within the Culture Lab?
Liz Manne
01:52:32
And Tanya, it’s super important to recognize that marquee names are a piece of the puzzle — emerging artists are also crucial. Funding is critical to put in place cultural organizers in each of the anchor organizations to build those networks and ensure creative partnerships are strategic and enduring.
Liz Manne
01:54:30
Brigid, the leadership of this project is all young POC leaders: Art Reyes, ED of We The People (Michigan); Stevie Valles, ED of Chicago Votes; Prentiss Haney, ED of Ohio Student Association; Sarah Audelo, ED of Alliance for Youth Organizing; Amber J. Phillips is leading creative and cultural network building. Young people will be hired as youth organizers.
Renee Fazzari
01:54:45

Liz Manne

There are some cultural strategy consultants available to support with training and resources like myself and Erin Potts (founder of Revolutions Per Minute) and Kirk Cheyfitz. But it’s all led by young people.
Gerald Lenoir
01:55:45
Excellent work. Excellent presentations. Thanks so much. I appreciate all of you.
Renee Fazzari

Thank you, great and exciting work!
Renee Fazzari
01:56:14
Thanks Patrick!!
Josh Clark
01:56:18
THIS is the expertise. It's not young people have been failing, it's the old models and structure failing young people. Thanks MCL!
Renee Fazzari
01:56:27
Yes Josh!!
