Sunday, January 19th, 2020, 4 PM: FAITH + WORKS –  “Work With the Oranges: engaging and retreating to do what you LOVE!” – Dominic Moulden 

The Oranges are a community rich in history, culture, parks, and people. He will lead us to explore a reflective journey on how to engage our community in faithful work and at the same time balance our work with healthy living in the form of retreating for rest, relaxation, and wellness. We can work with the Oranges and experience a life of full engagement, and then retreat with nature in the Oranges.

Dominic T. Moulden is a longtime resource organizer at Organizing Neighborhood Equity (ONE DC), a collectively-led organization that builds people power and economic and racial equity in Washington, DC. He is a frequent lecturer at various universities and conferences regarding equitable revitalization, cooperative economics, affordable housing, workplace democracy, community development, and public policy. As 2018 Urbanist in Residence at the University of Orange (UofO), Moulden incorporates ONE DC’s People’s Platform in his political and popular education sessions for UofO’s “400 Years of Inequality: Observing the Anniversary of Jamestown, Disrupting the Ecology of Inequality” project. At the Maryland Institute College of Art he recently co-teaches “Making Art in Community,” which focused on art-making, critical theory, and community organizing strategies.

Moulden is also a community-accountable photographer and social justice documentarian. His work has been exhibited most recently in MICA Place’s “Portraits Of People We Love” exhibition curated by Sarah McCann. A native of east Baltimore, his images celebrate Black love and resilience while providing uncompromising witness to the ongoing displacement of Afrodiasporic people in Baltimore and elsewhere in the Americas. His creative practice and organizing work are both dedicated to fostering a culture of health that includes art, joy, and radical resource redistribution.
