We are in a social emergency. In natural emergencies like hurricanes or floods, emergency response centers provide food, shelter, and healing. Social Emergency Response Centers (SERCs) re-imagine these centers to take on the real and pressing social emergency that we are facing today. They help us pivot out of humdrum time, through despair, rage and hopelessness into collective, creative and radical action.
SERCs will function as both an artistic gesture and a practical solution, creating opportunities for social intervention, emotional healing, collective art-making, performances, political workshops, collective cooking and more.
Social Emergency Response Centers (SERCs) are temporary, emergent, and creative pop-up spaces co-led by activists and artists around the US. They include creative action, healing, collective making, performances and more. Boston is hosting the first SERC.
Come join community members of all ages engaged in printmaking, spoken word, boxing, taiko drumming, dialog, drum circles, performances, storytelling, and more.
