*Morning: Move! People Activate Positions: A magazine writing workshop, interactive dance and body movement seminar. Working interactively as a group to create situations within the workshop which highlight conflict and othering with a possible outcome of publishing a magazine. The magazine may be a xerox, may be a poster, may be a street event.
*Afternoon: Activations (performances in public space). Various performances around San Francisco that activate history and memory.
*Evening: Remembering Forward; bumping into yesterday's mistakes tomorrow. A roundtable discussion. Dealing with radical legacies, a roundtable discussion on how do we remember and how do we move ahead. Part of the discussion uses performance and activated public space as a focal point.
