I write this email in support of Macao, a critically important independent cultural and research center located in Milan, Italy. Reflecting on the conditions of labor and social expectations that establish the groundwork for new creative cities, including Milan, Macao generates significant resources of knowledge along with new imaginative practices that link art together with progressive, community transformation. It is vital to reinforce the independence of this impressive urban experiment, especially today, in this moment of crisis for both global politics and democracy. I urge all forward thinking people to do the same.
