"George A. Romero's 1981 cult classic, Knightriders, explores the process of community-building through the lens of that ever-popular safehaven for misfits and outsiders, the ren faire. The film argues passionately for the value of lifestylism and the need to create spaces outside of capitalism in the here and now. Though it addresses serious topics such as police brutality, capitalist recuperation of alternative subcultures, and the difficulties of coming out as queer, it also makes time for joy and wish fulfillment from singing around a campfire to running nazis off the road, not to mention lots and lots of epic motorcycle jousts." -Steph



  • How do you stay afloat financially without compromising your shared values? 
  • How do you decide what your shared values even are? 
  • Do you make decisions through rigid processes or more informally? 
  • At what point does community leadership become a cult of personality? 
  • What kind of external pressure are you prepared to deal with? 
  • What kinds of solidarity and instability does having a community of outsiders inherently create? 


Join them to discuss how Knightriders addresses those struggles that we encounter as artists and as organizers.
