Let’s Mobilize! The Art of Radical DIY Publishing

with Jessica Meuninck-Ganger
Wednesday, July 8; 6-9pm CDT

This workshop covers the history and contemporary applications of radical independent and collaborative publishing models including Cartoneras, zines, protest posters, prints, mud stencils, social sculptures, art builds, and more.

Participants will learn effective devices of democratization by creating unique hand-painted, hinge and stab bound structures using cardboard and up-cycled materials. Such structures enable social, political, and artistic expressions and merge visual and literary forms. The hinge-bound structure can double as a multi tool (“swiss army knife”) of protest posters — made for and by the people!

Certificate: 3 hours, Category C or D
