4. THE KCAC (The Kalamazoo Collective Arts Center) is a thing myself and several other folks have been looking to revive. This is the shirt design I ended up making for the crowdfunding we did. Expect shirts done in the next few weeks!


  5. "Some anarchists see anarchy as the ability to do whatever they want without having to be accountable to anyone else for their actions, I personally think that that kind of attitude is just the standard American “rugged individualism” bullshit repackaged as a faux-radical alternative, because it doesn’t challenge the fundamental alienation from each other we suffer under capitalism and the state. If our society replaces genuine community with consumer culture, authority, and oppression, that kind of anarchism simply rejects any idea of community at all. For me, anarchism is about replacing the false community of the state and consumer culture with a community based on mutual aid rather than competition, gift economy rather than capitalism, and collective agreements based on full consent and voluntary association rather than rules or laws based on state coercion and violence. Instead of being accountable to authority, I want us to actually be accountable to each other. A pretty important part of that is being able to come together as radical communities and have conversations about how alcohol and drugs impacts our work, our spaces, our relationships, and our unity, and to figure out what sorts of agreements and boundaries makes sense for us."

  15. The KCAC or Kalamazoo Collective Arts Center is in it’s last five days of online fundraising! They are at 80% of the goal, and are just looking for that final push! 

    Whatever you can contribute will help to establish non-profit status (in order to late acquire grants as a means of paying rent), secure a location, and help buy equipment. 

    Please consider this venture for an accessible, all ages art space in Kalamazoo.
