Aperture has invited the artist-run super PAC, For Freedoms, to curate and implement an improvisational exhibition and series of dialogues that investigates the photographic collective as a model for responsive artistic production. This two-week project will feature live events that bring together several active photography communities to discuss the practices, benefits, and methodologies of collectivity, while focusing on the question of what defines “the political” in art-making today. The photographic collective is a form intended to amplify the individual voice and to provide a forum for artistic feedback and critique. Is the act of creating dialogue in and o

Our courts are out of balance. A judicial system premised on the concept of professional representation is now increasingly deciding cases in which at least one side is not represented by counsel. In some instances, all parties have lawyers. In others, some litigants have lawyers and some do not. In many matters, none of the parties have the assistance of counsel.
In every instance, people and organizations are seeking resolution of critical disputes ranging from basic shelter to child custody to payment for damages, and everything in between. Although our justice community has responded with, among other things, a significant expansion of resources for unrepresented litigants, it remains the case that the current system was designed for a reality that no longer exists. The time is right to rethink how our courts do business, and reconsider the structure of our judicial system, so that it can better meet the needs of everyone involved.
A partnership of three organizations – The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Trial Court, Northeastern University School of Law’s NuLawLab, and the premier design and innovation consultancy IDEO – is ready to tackle a fundamental redesign of formal conflict resolution for an age when legal representation is no longer assured.
Our process will leverage the application of service and system design methodologies to approach the challenge from the perspective of the full range of end-users of our courts – represented and unrepresented parties, attorneys, judges, clerks and administrators, jury members, and many others. The targeted outcome of our project is a fully redesigned trial court experience that, after sufficient evaluation, could be scaled geographically and substantively to other trial court departments across Massachusetts as well as other jurisdictions across the country.
Come and celebrate another accomplishment in support of workers' rights. We are excited to be launching the Mass Domestic Workers' Hotline because workers can call in during their free time to hear about their labor rights.
This project was created through a partnership of Studio Rev, the Brazilian Worker Center, and Northeastern University NuLawLab. When: Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 3-5pm
Where: Northeastern University School of Law, 65 Forsyth Street in Dockser Hall (Refreshments and Snacks will be served)
