 MORUS , is now 10 years old special thanks to all the volunteers and all the volunteer run reclaimed spaces that we’ve used and promoted to bring about more community and urban sustainability. 

JOIN US TO CELEBRATE 10 YEARS OF MORUS

For ten years, the Museum Of Reclaimed Urban Space has worked to preserve the history of grassroots activism. Since the museum’s foundation by volunteers from Time’s Up environmental organization with the generous donation of their archives, we have continued to thrive and grow. In addition to hosting workshops, collaborating with schools and colleges, and working with other museums, MORUS has inspired a younger generation to create a new revolution of reclaiming their history and recreating their public urban space in a more sustainable, community-oriented way. Join us to celebrate 10 years of direct action with a party at Nublu on September 11, 2022 from 5-9pm.

16th Annual Anarchist Bookfair

The NYC Anarchist Book Fair brings hundreds of anarchists, anarchy supporters and curious visitors together in New York City (on Lenape land). The book fair and related events offer a space for the anarchist community, bringing together anarchx-feminists, activists, scholars, workers, immigrants, queers, trans, artists and multi- racial individuals. It also offers an opportunity for the curious to learn about anarchism tradition, philosophy, praxis and the anti-capitalist struggle.

And those above event descriptions are just a few of the words that I have come across on morus’s Facebook page for their 10th Anniversary party that Bill, a co founder of morus, who is also the founder of  Time’s Up! , and volunteers, seem to single handedly put on,

And in between battling  murphy’s law and not being able to actually make it to any of these above events, and reading world news of the day , this blog post is yet another attempt to maintain web 2.0 user generated content whenever blaghers block possible.

And so I dropped off a few #tompkinssquarepark t-shirts @ Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space – MORUS . Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space! Film Festival, Anarchist Book Fair, Anarchist Film Festival and morusnyc 10 Year Anniversary Party @ nublu Sept 8th – Sept 11th, #morus #nyc #newyorkcity #alphabetcity #lowereadtside #eastvillage
