Exhibition opening: 'When We Fight, We Win!'
Join writer and activist Greg Jobin-Leeds and community arts organization AgitArte for the opening celebration for the exhibition "When We Fight, We Win!" or "¡Cuando Luchamos, Ganamos!"
The exhibition builds on the collaborators' book of the same name, which was released in 2016 to document the lessons and creative strategies that have surfaced in social movements between 2000 and 2015 in the United States. Like the book, the exhibition will feature artists and cultural organizers whose work has bolstered modern social movements and built solidarity across place, culture and struggle.
When: Friday, June 29, 7-10 p.m.
Where: The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural & Educational Center, 107 Suffolk St., Lower East Side

Don't miss comedian Sydnee Washington's shameless one-woman show exposing the trials and tribulations of life as a bottle waitress. As Time Out New York previously reported, Washington takes the stage to reminisce on a "decade of hard-partying, fussy tables and finding her voice.”
