Opening Thursday, May 4th, from 6PM - 9PM
Following a workshop on Conflict De-Escalation and Personal Accountability in our everyday lives as as artists, join a public dialogue on ways the community can support each other in this work. F12)))’s core organizers will share information on coming out of the iconic Feminist Action Support Network, current resources, and upcoming projects. We want to hear from you, gather your input and answer your questions.
This community meeting is open to all members of the public. Please RSVP so we can prepare adequately.

ABOUT F12 NETWORK
F12 comes out of the Feminist Action Support Network, which existed in the DIY Chicago arts community and surrounding political underground. It employed diverse & universally free services including working with venues to employ “Support Liasons” at shows around the city and carrying out Accountability Processes in instances of harm.
Like FASN, F12))) produces workshops, events, and opportunities that a diverse web of like-minded individuals can pick up and disseminate easily, but organizers are no longer attempting to assume any “responsive” roles themselves (which can unintentionally mirror police & the prison-industrial complex).
