Occupy Antarctica

I suppose that I should mention that Occupy Antarctica was a HUGE SUCCESS! Thanks to the lovely and talented Kai Altair, Danielle, everyone at House of Collection, the members of Gypsy Trans Temporalis, and the nice folks at Our Spaces who make Antarctica Day a real thing.

The time traveling gypsies invited us to journey through both space and time to relive the story of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s adventures in Antarctica.

If you’re sad that you missed it, you’ll be even sadder when you see what we gave away at the door:

Yes, that’s a Shackleton sticker, because I’m a Shackleton fangirl. I still have a few, so email me if you feel that your life would be greatly enhanced if you owned one of these.

We danced, we sang, we drank, and we told stories. We learned about Antarctica and considered ways to govern common spaces. All told, an excellent night!
