AAA: Creative Protest Workshop w/ MN350.org
April 1st, 1:00pm
The Soap Factory
What do we want?
Better protest art!
When we we want it?
As artists and activists, it’s time to up our game as we take to the streets to build the climate-just world we want and everyone needs. With Northern Spark 2017 partner and climate activists MN350.org, spend an afternoon painting banners and learning techniques to maximize your visual presence in public space. Turn texts into a gigantic banner using Piotr Szyhalski’s large printing apparatus or punch small into wearable buttons. This workshop is designed to both give an introduction to different methods of making a visual impact and well as provide space and (some) supplies for building, messaging, experimenting and making.
Supplies to bring:
Printed materials to turn into buttons using the Northern Spark button-maker.
Specs: printed images 1.5 inches square
