2 Hours A Week

EDUCATE & ACT is a series of events aimed at empowering all of us to be better informed citizens and activists, with stronger voices and greater stamina.

Co-hosted by Hunter Artist Action Group (HAAG) of Hunter MFA and 2 Hours a Week.

This program is made possible by the generosity of our peers and colleagues, who are donating their time, knowledge, and skills to help us together build a strong and aware community of support and resistance.
