CURRENT: 6+ Collective: "The Migrant Manifesto"
Members of the 6+ Collective have been invited to participate in the December
18 Day of Actions, an event organized by artist Tania Bruguera and Immigrant
Movement International: http://immigrant-movement.us/december18/. Over 170
artists, artist collectives, immigrants and activists from around the globe are
performing actions to mark what has been designated International Migrants
Day by the United Nations. The Migrant’s Manifesto was created by a group
of scholars and activists that aims to highlight the ongoing condition of human
migration and its role in the contemporary experience. The manifesto calls for
a re-imagining of immigrant rights : http://immigrant-movement.us/migrant-
manifesto/ . Members of 6+ have elected to create a video that brings together
the voices of three members of the collective in a reading of the Migrant’s
Manifesto. The project will be shared on Facebook at 2pm Eastern time, 2pm
Central time and 2pm Mountain time in recognition of the home base of each of
the artists. This video and other joint actions will be broadcast and take place at
2pm local time on Sunday December 18th by participants around the globe.
