Adelita Husni-Bey stages workshops and produces publications, radio broadcasts, archives and exhibitions focused on using collectivist and non-competitive pedagogical models within the framework of urban studies. In her 10 years of practicing as both an artist and a pedagogue, Adelita has worked with activists, architects, journalists, jurists, schoolchildren, spoken word poets, students, and teachers on unpacking the complexity of collectivity and role-making. To make good what can never be made good: what we owe each other.
