attending workshops. Activities will respond to the site of the conference, offering a younger generation the chance to engage in conference
themes. Parents and guardians may participate with their child(ren).

Thursday + Friday // 9:00 AM—6:00 PM, Trillium Lake Room
The PreCarity Lab invites a group of artists to document and interpret the conference. Artists select a panel of their choice and document their experience using diverse mediums including drawing, painting, writing, photography and video. The Trillium Lake Room will serve as a project space where artists can complete their creative documentation. Work will be exhibited throughout the conference in hopes of
cultivating unexpected conversations about precarity and the conference experience itself. The project is grounded in the vital role of artists to see and communicate insights, especially when it comes to encountering alternative ways of approaching topics related to precarity.
All conference attendees are welcome to participate.
Please stop by the Trillium Lake Room to make your own creative interpretation of the conference.
Coordinators: Michelle Swinehart & Merel Visse
