Artists/cultural workers are knowledge makers and engaged citizens.
They are
experts at creatively utilizing their hybrid skills to reach numerous
audiencesÐfrom school children and people on the street, to
and far-flung electronic audiencesÐwith meaningful "messages" ranging
healing images and narratives to analyses of mass-media imagery and
manipulation. The traditional view of art1s potential in this crisis
expressed in the New York Times of September 17, in which the pleasures
art were described as "comfort, replenishment, beauty," the museum "as
calm haven from devastating events," and the future direction of public
as a return to the memorial, and a turning away from the "humorous or
ironic." All of these observations are apt, but reinforce the notion of
contemporary art is remove from daily life. In a time of crisis, they
are too

NEW YORK (AP) - A Central Park memorial this weekend to the police and
firefighters who died heroically at the World Trade Center - a gathering
that was expected to draw as many as a million people - will not take place,
city officials said.
The city Parks Department did not immediately say why the memorial would not
be held. It had been organized by a committee that includes former Mayors
David Dinkins and Edward Koch and leading Protestant, Jewish, Muslim and
Catholic clergy.
``There is not an event going on in Central Park this weekend,'' said Parks
Department spokesman Jeff Sandgrund. ``We're not organizing an event in
Central Park.''
The cancellation was news to a city that was still jittery, eight days after
two planes hijacked by terrorists laid waste to the Trade Center and killed
more than 5,000 people.

Anonymous Comrade writes: "Due to the recent events at the World Trade Center, Washington
DC, and western Pennsylvania, the Armada to reclaim
Governors Island has been postponed indefinitely. It had been planned for the 16th of September.

Anonymous Comrade writes: "Woomera is a remote town, 500 kms from Adelaide (Australia). It is also the centre of an economy of death, suffering and incarceration founded on the dispossession of indigenous lands. Our humanity is obliterated in Woomera, in the concentration camp, by missiles, by nuclear weapons, by toxic waste, by colonisation, by capitalism, by fear and division.

We are making the journey to discover our humanity in the liberation of those who have been dehumanised.

We are making the journey to refuse the death, pain and confinements that are manufactured in the name of The Economy. We refuse the caging behind razor wire and the new world borders fashioned so that capital, by reserving for itself the 'right' to move around the world, can better enforce austerity, misery, the earth's destruction and the 'race-to-the-bottom'.

In 2002, each of us are making the journey in our own unique way to reveal the connections between dispossession and the enclosures; the dislocations that have occurred and are still occurring in the name of profits, warlords and empire. We will not mimic what we go to abolish, but instead wish to open a multitude of paths toward a different world.

We invite you to make the journey with us.
