Art Activist and Founder of The Spoon Movement to Speak at Housatonic Community College

By Laura Roberts

Fernando Luis Alvarez

On Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., global game-changer Fernando Luis Alvarez, and founder of The Spoon Movement, will present, “Demanding Accountability Through Art Activism, Passion and Fearlessness,” in Housatonic Community College’s Beacon Hall, Room BH-214. The free lecture is open to HCC and Gateway Community College students, the public and the media.

Alvarez, who is the producer of the widely-acclaimed Opioid: Express Yourself! art show and director of Alvarez Gallery, will share his risk-taking art activism strategy behind the guerrilla installations that continue igniting global awareness of the opioid epidemic while demanding accountability by the architects of this crisis.

“I am honored and excited to share my art activism, specifically, The Spoon Movement with attendees. The hundreds of thousands of victims of the opioid epidemic and their families deserve to be heard and those involved in creating and exacerbating this crisis brought to justice beyond civil suits,” says Alvarez.

Those interested in attending the free lecture can RSVP on The Spoon Movement’s Facebook event page. To learn more about The Spoon Movement, please log on to thespoonmovement.com.
