The Class and the Arts Network and East Side Freedom Library invite you to a “sock hop” social party, 4–6 p.m., Jan. 17 at East Side Freedom Library, 1105 Greenbrier Street, Saint Paul. For nine months, the Class and the Arts Network sponsored conversations among performing arts professionals and others about the role of class and economics in the shaping of work in the arts industry. These conversations have been eye-opening and inspiring as well as informative, and now participants are looking for ways to act together to build solidarity and community.
Inspired by the Woolgathering Project, this event requires attendees to bring a pair (or more) of new socks to be donated to local homeless children, men and women. This is a great opportunity at the outset of the New Year to build relationships across the many crafts and trades that are involved in creating dramatic work and putting it in front of the public.
