Bill Ritchey – The Creativity of Occupy

Social movements generate art, music, and innovative social forms. They open up possibilities for a different future. Bill Ritchey, a founding participant of Occupy Portland, spoke at Oregon State University about the creative activist imagination, the social and political ideas generated by Occupy movement, and how that movement has continued to inspire on-going social justice projects.

      Elizabeth, we are still stunned here also. Bill died in very early September of a heart attack, in the hospital. I miss him every single day.
