On Thursday December 15th, Kumi Silva will explore the intersection of and relationships between race, gender, sexuality and class in contemporary culture and media. The effects of all this on messaging, marketing and effect on consumption(and vice-versa) will be discussed as well.This will be similar to past Conscious Consuming events. It is a potluck with the option to pay $10 in lieu of bringing something.

Dinner will start promptly at 7 and kumi will get the ball rolling at 8. After the last event filling-up so quickly, we are excited to be able to host 30 people this time!
