School of Echoes Los Angeles (SOELA) delivers a free, public lecture as part of the Intra-Disciplinary Seminar series.
SOELA is a multi-racial and multi-generational autonomous collective of organizers, teachers, and artists founded in 2012. SOELA operates as an open listening space for community-based research and popular education in support of anti-gentrification organizing in Los Angeles, specifically through participation in the L.A. Tenants Union, where we give our energies daily. Current SOELA members include: James Bigelow, Elizabeth Blaney, Anthony Carfello, Zack Hausle, Luz Elena Henao, John Hulsey, Shauna Johnson, Christina Sanchez Juarez, Paul Lanctot, Daniela Lieja, Betty Marin, René Christian Moya, Anne Orchier, Dont Rhine, Tracy Jeanne Rosenthal, Walt Senterfitt, Julian Newman-Smith, and Leonardo Vilchis.
The Spring 2019 IDS Lecture Series at The Cooper Union is organized by Leslie Hewitt and Omar Berrada. The IDS Public Lecture Series is part of the Robert Lehman Visiting Artist Program at The Cooper Union. We are grateful for major funding and support from the Robert Lehman Foundation for the series. The IDS Public Lecture Series is also made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
Located in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)
