Renewable Assemblies: Dis/Course with Ivanna Baranova and Kayla Ephros

The School of Life and Language Arts (SOLALA) is an education network that offers various containers and platforms for community-based education. Our discussion will be inspired by Fred Moten’s idea of the “renewable assembly”— how can we create sustainable forms of pedagogy that don’t rely on institutions? How might we bring What Is Already Happening into the heart of our exchanges? How do we continue to Play School?

This event will take place virtually over Zoom. Registration through The Poetry Project's Eventbrite is required. Zoom links will be shared upon registration, one week before the event, and 24 hours before the event. In an effort to build and hold collective community, we ask that Zoom links not be shared. If you have any questions, have trouble accessing your Eventbrite account, or have trouble accessing Zoom after the event's listed start time, please contact Poetry Project staff directly at

The Poetry Project is committed to making our event programming inclusive and accessible for individuals with different experiences, and are continuously working to improve and expand upon accessibility measures. Our online broadcasts feature live transcription and are presented on broadcasts compatible with most screen readers. If you have a question about either of these resources, or an accessibility measure we haven't described, please contact us at
