The Alternate ROOTS 38th ROOTS Week: Annual Meeting & Artists Retreat is a week-long gathering of members, activists and supporters in a retreat setting. Activities include artistic and professional training, performances, networking opportunities and training in how artists can approach their work with a social and environmental justice lens.

Alternate ROOTS is an organization based in the Southern USA whose mission is to support the creation and presentation of original art, in all its forms, which is rooted in a particular community of place, tradition or spirit. As a coalition of cultural workers we strive to be allies in the elimination of all forms of oppression. ROOTS is committed to social and economic justice and the protection of the natural world and addresses these concerns through its programs and services.
