Humans of Basic Income Exhibit
Tuesday, December 18, opening at noon
Presented by NOURISH and ARTSPACE, this one-day exhibit features the photography of Jessie Golem who took photos of participants in the Basic Income Guarantee pilot holding signs indicating the impact the pilot had on their lives. Now Jesse is asking anyone who supports basic income to share the reasons why they support it and have their photos taken. She is going to be in Peterborough to showcase her work, illustrate how we can support her work and talk about ways we can all advocate for basic income. The photographer will speak at Artspace at 6pm. 378 Aylmer St N, Peterborough.
