Reimagine This Place is an art-based benefit fundraiser organized by Media Lab students and staff in response to recent revelations of MIT’s ties to Jeffrey Epstein. We invite members of the MIT community (including students, faculty, employees, and alumni) to a night of art-making and music on Friday, 10/18 from 5pm to 10pm at the MIT Media Lab (6th Floor). At the event, attendees will be able to create poster designs reimagining this place, referring to both MIT and the larger world. Posters created will be distributed around campus as a way to reimagine the space that surrounds us. Proceeds from the event, as well as from the sale of posters created, will benefit victims of trafficking through the United Nations Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking.
The evening will include poetry readings and music performances, as well as food and drinks. For additional information, go to reimagine-mit.org.
Pricing update: Free student tickets will be capped at 200 (but you can still register with a small donation ahead of time). On the night-of, we will charge $5 at the door for people who did not register ahead of time at all. To purchase tickets and/or make donations, click here.
