Welcome to Get Woke!

Conversations in the Catskills

Get Woke! is organized and supported through the efforts of volunteers, non-profit organizations, students and residents in the upper Catskills region. Our primary goal is to use art and film to bring people together to work through and better understand issues around race and identity in the United States -- especially within the context of rural communities like ours.


What we do

Get Woke! hosts reading groups, artist talks and lectures, and other activities that explore race and identity. Our goal is to nurture a more inclusive community!
