After reading Trong Gia Nyugen’s great interview with activist group Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.), I become really interested in their work. I started to poke around the Internet to see if there were any upcoming live events in New York City and there is one tonight! W.A.G.E. is speaking on a panel.
Here is the information:
