Forms of Exchange

@ Compound Yellow

244 Lake St, Oak Park, IL 60302-2637

Opening Sunday, December 18th, from 1PM - 4PM

Compound Yellow is dedicating the next two months to various Forms of Exchange and Generosity.

We want to support a culture of sharing resources and ideas to provide a respite from the daily experience of competition and commodification that defines much of our experience. Instead, we want to make space for subversive acts, courage, vulnerability, care for self and other, acts of generosity, sharing economies, anti-competition and we want to acknowledge, support and work alongside all who have fought and continue to fight for human rights for all.

Send us your proposals! Workshops, book clubs, film series, readings + discussions, performative lectures, story telling, multiples to make and distribute (posters, buttons, zines, etc), services to offer and other ideas for a new future.
