GrayLit Launch Event

November 17, 2019

Please join us at Printed Matter St Marks on Sunday, November 17 at 4pm for the launch of GrayLit: a print and digital periodical for liberatory art and thought at the intersection of Palestinian and Jewish histories.

With special guests: Music: Huda Asfour (oud) & Irina Solinas (cello) Poetry: Claire Schwartz & Zein El-Amine

GrayLit: A Culture Hub is a rich source of information and ideas outside the realm of mainstream media and dominant political discourse — like the non-conventional, often subversive material the term “gray literature” describes.

GrayLit aims to contribute to an emergent culture shift happening at the intersections of Palestinian and Jewish histories, via critical thought and art from and about interdependent movements for justice.

GrayLit affirms the power of art: to instigate and sustain long-term culture shift; to assert that artists have a responsibility to intervene in the mechanisms of censorship imposed by mainstream media and by political bodies; to deepen readers’ critical thinking and inspire creative, impactful action.

GrayLit seeks to cultivate a space for artists to imagine and work towards a different world — one built on demilitarization, racial justice, gender justice, indigenous sovereignty, decolonization, and collective liberation.
