Cinema Politica Nanaimo presents PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE

Thursday, November 21, 2013 - 00:00 to 02:00

Mid-Island Council of Canadians and the Nanaimo Arts Council invite the community to join us for PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE: THE ART AND ACTIVISM OF CAROLE CONDÉ & KARL BEVERIDGE as part of Cinema Politica's special screening series "ArtDox". This screening is free and open to the public. Donations welcome.

As the wealth divide and environmental crises grip public awareness, the world is finally catching up to the vision and ideas of two artist/activists who make work for social change. Inspired by their playful wit and visual innovations, PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE intimately captures Carole Condé & Karl Beveridge as they create provocative staged photographs about the environment, the rights of workers and the current global financial crisis.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
