Tug* is a free-range, performative research collective that serves as a platform for addressing issues of social and cultural transformation through critical creativity and energetic thinking. Co-founded in 2006 by Gustavo Aguilar and Gaelyn Aguilar, Tug has collaborated with art initiatives and community members along the NAFTA Corridor (e.g. within Canada, the United States, and México) on projects that are all, in their respective ways, trying to provide a localized and humanized perspective of what Arjun Appadurai has called “globalization from below.” For more information, please visitwww.tugcollective.org.
