Trek Flights

Trek Flights was inspired by a wine flight. A Wine Flight is a selection of wine presented in a row for tasting. Often, this involves placing a few wine glasses with different types of white wine or red wine types on a special board for serving. 4-6 wines are typically in a flight. We started developing the concept under the banner of Trek Table and Calling Up Justice published these videos on tiktok.

CitiBikeKaren Talk

CitiBikeKaren Talk: The Hysterectomy Celebration Fundraiser. Maiamama joins us from the recovery bed as we discuss the CitiBikeKaren Discourse.

We produced this as a fundraiser for Maiama’s recovery fund.

Every 28 Hours Plays Jordan Neely Action

In 2012 a study found that every 28 hours a black person was extrajudicially killed by vigilante, security guard, or the police in the United States. This statistic was immediately contested and the country is still embroiled with addressing a problem it struggles to acknowledge. Inspired by the conversation we needed to have this project was developed. Currently produced by Claudia Alick and CALLING UP, The Every 28 Hours Plays project was originally developed with The Oregon Shakespeare Festival and The One-Minute Play Festival with over one-hundred artistic collaborators across the country. Collaborators include Tony award-winning artists, activists, family members directly affected by police violence, politicians, cultural organizers, and law enforcement. The project consists of over seventy short plays that reflect the current civil rights movement, and tools to help your community address these issues, grow empathy, and become healthier. We offer the plays on a Pay What You Can model as part of our philosophy of radical generosity.
