Place&Print: Sticking it to the Streets
VIRTUAL DIY Screen Printing + Advocacy + Placemaking
Saturdays, 1:30 - 3 pm, January 9 - February 6
Register by January 4th!
In this workshop you will learn about the history of posters, advocacy in Nebraska, how to DIY screen print from home, wheatpasting, and a really important issue facing our city right now: eviction. At the end of the five weeks neighbors will have posters, stickers, patches, and yard signs that they can use to advocate on the issues they care about. Posters will be wheatpasted at a pop up art installation outside at 1120 E St, an apartment project by South of Downtown Community Development Organization. We believe art has tremendous potential to shape our built environment, policy and culture. We hope this workshop empowers residents to raise their voice and use their resources to advocate on the issues they care about!
