Sol Aramendi

El Co-op

To support "El Co-op," a participatory project organized by artist Sol Aramendi that engages immigrant worker cooperatives in dialogical and art processes— creating a space for participants to spearhead a counter-narrative of solidarity using their own stories while informing and educating the community about the cooperative economy model and network. The project will have two phases. First, El Workers’ Studio will engage the participants in a listening and collaborative art making encounter. A Public Engagement phase will follow, featuring the public showcase of work created in the Studio.
