Announcing the Counter-Inaugural Convergence Center!

When: January 13th – January 21st
Where: 39 New York Ave. NE (enter through the blue door)

A Space to Organize, Create and Plan!

If you can dream it, this space can accommodate!

The Convergence Center will include:

  • Lobby Welcome / Information Center
  • Large Meeting Rooms that fit about 200 – 400, seating available
  • Large Art Room, accommodating dozens of people, supplies and large-scale arts projects
  • Small Meeting Rooms, 10 – 20 people
  • Computer room with DSL and wireless internet
  • Indymedia outpost (there will be a separate indymedia space as well)
  • Kitchen – with food provided by Seeds of Peace
  • Children’s Playroom
  • Legal Space
  • Media Space

    All of this means that there is space for your groups training, press conference or meeting (provided you schedule it in time)! We encourage you to utilize this amazing space!

    We also anticipate that the Convergence Center will host: nightly spokes-council meetings in the 2-3 days leading up to the 20th, a de-brief / regrouping meeting on the night of the 20th and a “Really, Really Free Market” on the 21st.

    Volunteers are needed at the convergence center to welcome people and provide information!
