While we are in transition and continuing our search for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners!
This AltLib Popup Series will run through the summer, presenting roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges, while we search for a new space to ground our collective. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

Film nights at the Alt Lib (every other Wednesday) – Dugma – The Button
August 24, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Tonight’s feature is a documentary about a Syrian Suicide Bombing Group. Some of the content may be disturbing to some. Please use your discretion.
Dugma – The Button – An intimate portrait of a group of very different suicide bombers working for Al Qaeda in Syria. From the Saudi who loves singing and fried chicken, to a 26-year-old white British convert who worries a lot about his new wife, this remarkable film embeds with an unlikely bunch of “martyrdom seekers”, each waiting for their turn to go on a final mission, known by Jihadis as ‘Dugma’.
The Screening will be followed by a discussion. Come join in the conversation.
