The Indypendent at LeftForum 2010 this weekend

Kate Perkins Mar 18, 2010

While many of the city’s filmmakers and musicians have fled to Austin, TX for the annual SXSW festival, LeftForum 2010 is getting underway here in NYC this weekend, drawing its typically large and eclectic pool of politically left thinkers, scholars, activists, artists and students. Check out the schedule here; and if you haven’t registered to attend yet, click here to do so. (As always, there are a range of price options to accommodate your budget.)
