Social Emergency Response Centers (SERCs) are pop-up spaces co-led by activistis and artists. They will function as both an artistic gesture and a practical solution. As such we will need to figure out the balance, like how will we feed people--and their hunger for justice? How will we create a shelter--where it's safe to bring your whole damn self? What will reconstruction--of civil society--look like?
