Sep 2nd 2023

Join us for the One Million Experiments film premiere party and concert!

One Million Experiments is a film exploring how we define and create wellness and reduce harm in a world without police and prisons. Built out of a podcast and curated collection of community-based safety projects created in the midst of the 2020 uprising, One Million Experiments celebrates the work already happening to build solutions that are grounded in transformation instead of punishment and invites you to participate in the joyous work of liberation. We don’t need one answer to how we get free–we need one million experiments.

There will be a 10PM premiere screening of the film, live performances from Senite, Damon A. Williams, DJ Selah Says and DJ Empathy, and abundant celebration. Come through!

This event is free and is 21+, due to restrictions of the venue. RSVP here, or at link in bio!

In order to keep our community safe, masking is required–some masks will be available at the door. Please do not attend if you are experiencing any symptoms–we will be hosting many screenings in the future and would love to see you at one of those!

Borrowing language from our friends at the Socialism Conference:

“We know that, in a society in which we have each been largely left to make our own individual decisions about how to navigate this pandemic and at a time when many of us are rarely, if ever, required to wear masks, this may cause surprise or even provoke questions from some attendees. Nonetheless, Covid remains rampant, our community is traveling to Chicago from all over the world, and our priorities remain the same as they have been. We aim to make our work accessible to anyone looking to participate in movement and—to the maximum extent possible—want to ensure that no one leaves having contracted Covid or another illness and suffering the resulting health and economic consequences. Even and especially if you’re not someone who typically opts to wear a mask, we thank you for respecting our policy and helping us to enact a compassionate and collective approach to holding a large-scale gathering during an ongoing health crisis.”

One Million Experiments is a project of Respair Production & Media, Interrupting Criminalization, & SoapBox Productions and Organizing.
