========================================

* ABC No Rio

ABC No Rio is a collectively-run center for art and activism. We are
known internationally as a venue for oppositional culture. ABC No
Rio was founded in 1980 by artists committed to political and social
engagement and we retain these values to the present.

We seek to facilitate cross-pollination between artists and activists.
ABC No Rio is a place where people share resources and ideas to
impact society, culture, and community. We believe that art and
activism should be for everyone, not just the professionals, experts,
and cognoscenti. Our dream is a cadres of actively aware artists and
artfully aware activists.

Our community is defined by a set of shared values and convictions.
It is both a local and international community. It is a community
committed to social justice, equality, anti-authoritarianism,
autonomous action, collective processes, and to nurturing alternative
structures and institutions operating on such principles. Our
community includes artists and activists whose work promotes
critical analysis and an expanded vision of possibility for our lives
and the lives of our neighborhoods, cities, and societies. It includes
punks who embrace the Do-It-Yourself ethos, express positive
outrage, and reject corporate commercialism. It includes nomads,
squatters, fringe dwellers, and those among society's disenfrachised
who find at ABC No Rio a place to be heard and valued.
