Saturday, April 2 and Saturday, April 16, 2–4:30pm
This two-part workshop is for early-stage creatives (or artists new to movement art making) interested in creating artwork in collaboration with an organization focusing on prison/police abolition, anti-militarism/imperialism, environmental/land justice, or other efforts for racial, economic, gender, disability, and education justice in Chicago.
Together with Chicago organizer Monica Trinidad, participants will explore a hands-on process of collaborative art making as a key site of transformation and power building, creating art as portals for storytelling, tools for mobilizing and engaging, and sites of inspiration to build muscles of hope for the long haul.
It is highly recommended to attend both workshops, on March 26 and April 9, both from 2-4:30pm, in order to complete the process of creating one poster in collaboration with an organization. Accommodations can be made for only attending one workshop date or wanting to attend virtually. This workshop has a maximum capacity of 15 participants. If in person, participants will be required to wear masks and show proof of vaccination. Registration for this event has closed.
