Using my three hats today, on behalf of Juris North, ASAP UK and Fundação Angelica Goulart, MANY THANKS for coming together! The ASAP- Juris North event this weekend went great.
As promised, please find all the video links below. I’ve added both, Facebook and Youtube because people may have different platforms, internet connections and preferences. Please feel free to share and tag you/your Institutions. Our hashtag on social media: #ASAPJN2020
Many thanks to all our speakers and attendees who came together during this very difficult time. We had people from St Petersburg, Sao Paulo, Wuhan, Bergamo, London, Moscow, Manchester, Mexico, and many other places around the world representing different disciplines, several Institutions (only to name a few here in the UK, Manchester, MMU, UCL, Bournemouth and Westminster) and people at large. One thing I’d like to highlight: the event was completely free for all attendees and each and every speaker presented their work completely freely. We decided to stand together and use the opportunity to send a message of community, calm, solidarity and reconciliation.
Also, as I’ve mentioned on DAY 2, I’m already planning two action points:
1. PUBLICATION. Any publishing house interested in helping us with this, please contact me directly.
2. ROUNDTABLES: To follow up what we discussed, I’ll send a separate email next week about this. Any expressions of interest to lead (or co-lead) a thematic table would be great. The overall idea would be to have thematic and multi-disciplinary tables, meet up every two weeks or so on Zoom (private meetings, not to be shared live) and produce a manifesto, document, monograph about how we define this NEW MODERNITY by the end of this year/start 2021. Again, details will follow next week.
I think that’s all for me right now. Last but not least, I’ll send a separate email by the end of this week from Fundação Angelica Goulart. Our Team there sent me an email with their gratitude to all of us and put together some words for those who’re helping them help others. Just a glimpse: we’ve already received 4 tons of food and are currently supporting 13 communities in the NE of Brazil Wishing you all a good week! Best, Jorge
