Not An Alternative encourages communities to harness the tools of advertising, public relations, and historical events to dissolve boundaries between artistic and political progress.

Not an Alternative

Not An Alternative is a community organization dedicated to integrating art and activism into the public’s understanding of history and events, operating through their multipurpose space The Change You Want to See Gallery. Represented at the Summit by co-founders Beka Economopoulos and Jason Jones, Not An Alternative’s practice includes workshops, trainings, panels, film screenings and more. Recent projects include a tent-city installation and demonstration in a vacant East Harlem lot. Economopoulos is also the Online Organizing Manager at Greenpeace USA.
