Fri, Mar 06, 2020 6:00 PM - Fri, Mar 06, 2020 10:00 PM @ Listen Hear

Big numbers of people are locked up in the United States.

Under correctional control: 6,700,000
Behind bars: 2,300,000
Serving life sentences in state prisons: 200,000

(Prison Policy Initiative, Correctional Control 2018)

The number of sites of incarceration—where people are “pinned
down”—is big as well. It makes sense, right? We need a lot of
buildings and cells in which to lock up all these folks.
Federal prisons. State prisons. County jails. City jails. Local lockups.

Juvenile detention centers. Secure juvenile residential facilities.
University police holding cells. Tribal prisons and jails. Military
detention facilities. ICE sites. Forestry camps. Airport holding cells.

Join us March 6th for the opening of Wes Janz- Pinned Down: The Locking Up of America

Many of us are unaware of the scope of this industry even as we
don’t know of caging sites that are close by. “Pinned Down,” through the use of state maps and pushpins, evidences the geography of incarceration that blankets the nation. Included alongside the maps are issues central to our imprisoning culture, and pieces from the artist’s earlier “Crazy for Cages” show.

The documentary “Digging the Suez Canal with a Teaspoon: Social Design in the 21st Century” will also be shown (as produced by Eric Limarenko and David Stairs in 2019,
Wes is the first of eleven voices from the U.S., South Africa, Great Britain, and India).

Too often we are, as Cornel West has stated, “well adjusted to
injustice.” It is my hope that this installation will contribute to our much-needed re-adjustment.

About Janz
Wes Janz, PhD, was a professor of architecture at Ball State University for twenty-two years (1995-2017). Among the highlights: ten years as graduate program director; primary author of undergraduate minor and graduate certificate programs in social and environmental justice; and sole recipient of the university’s Outstanding Teaching Award in 2006.

In 2008 he was a winner of the inaugural Curry Stone Design Prize, as awarded to breakthrough international projects that “engage communities at the fulcrum of change, raising awareness, empowering individuals and fostering collective revitalization.”

The National Endowment for the Arts, along with the Graham, Ruth Mott, Fulbright-Hays, and Efroymson Foundations, among others, supported his research and design efforts; and the Venice Biennale and university galleries throughout the Midwest featured Wes’s work. Janz has traveled, listened, and lectured on six continents.

Making Democracy Work One Voter at a Time!

Learn how to register voters at the FREE 90 minute training sessions hosted by the League of Women Voters of Indianapolis.

As the nation’s oldest nonpartisan organization, the LWV will help you understand how to help others properly complete the federal voter registration form, navigate Indiana’s online voter registration portal, and educate voters on what they need to know they go to the polls.

These trainings are excellent for new LWV members wishing to learn how to register voters and are especially useful for non-profit community leaders wishing to engage in voter services activities ahead of the 2020 elections.

We recognize that these trainings fall over the dinner hour. Unfortunately, we cannot provide food, but please feel free pack a meal or snack to bring with you.

Kheprw Institute and Solar United Neighbors will be partnering for a conversation and presentation on Energy Democracy and Indianapolis’s Low-Moderate Income Solar Pilot launching in Indianapolis.

Join us on Saturday February 22nd, from 2pm-4pm to learn if you qualify to get a solar install on your home at no cost. This conversation is made possible through support from the Climate Justice Alliance.

LEARN MORE AND SIGN UP:
https://coops.solarunitedneighbors.org/coops/indianapolis/

WHAT IS ENERGY DEMOCRACY?

1. Distribute Power
– We will discuss alternative energy sources and economic factors that come into play in the means of accessibility.

2. Decentralization
⁃ Discuss creating alternative energy everywhere! or maybe challenging factors. Why doesn’t everyone have solar panels and wind turbines? How can we get there?

3. Ownership
⁃ Get communities involved, community led, community funded alternative energy. Get away from government entities.

4. Disruptive Technology
⁃ What technology is in the way of easy solutions?
