What did you experience, and where? How can one other’s stories help us see our city differently? Join us as we rewrite the map of the Financial District in celebration of the second anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. If you participated in the Occupy movement yourself, or you’re interested in hearing the memories of those who did, this is a unique opportunity to remember what happened and plan for greater things to come.
Participatory Walking Tour
4 pm to 7 pm - Starting at Bowling Green Beginning near the Charging Bull statue where it all began, we’ll walk together to different sites across the Financial District and share our stories of what happened there—the moments of triumph, the policy brutality, the corporate opponents in our midst. Facilitators will guide a participatory discussion in which all who come can be guides to one another. Check #owswalk for updates on where we are if you come late.
7 pm to 10 pm - 16 Beaver St., 4th floor In the evening, join us for celebration, mingling, and facilitated discussion on the past and future of the Occupy rupture. Expect: a collaborative map-making activity; discounted copies of new books about the movement; living relics from the Occupy anarchives; and much more. Please bring a drink or snack to share.
Both events are free and open to the public.
