Decoding Culture & Re-Centering Difference
Using Judy Grahn’s poetic and intellectual work, the Commonality Institute seeks to revision and replace increasingly dated philosophies with more equitable ones for the purpose of improving human collaborations. Headquartered in Oakland & New Orleans, we facilitate embodied and artistic education for social healing. We do this by providing and further developing origin stories that reframe the human adventure in more inclusive ways, and that re-center self and other.
In 2017, we launched the My Good Judy artist residency in New Orleans and are currently accepting applications for the 2019/2020 season. We produce events throughout the U.S. while seeking internationalism. All Commonality Institute events and Judy Grahn’s public appearances are posted on our events calendar.
With your help, we will next be able to begin offering classes and expand our programming.
