For the Land & the Water & the People: Art Workshop
March 24 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
RiVAL: the ReImagining Value Action Lab is pleased to host a community workshop with Dylan AT Miner called “For the Land and the Water and the People”.
In this one-day workshop, participants will learn a brief history of activist-oriented graphics creation. They will also create their own images that address Indigenous, environmental, migrant, and labour justice. Throughout the workshop, participants will also learn the basics of screen-printing and be able to print graphics both created during the workshop, as well as images supplied by Dylan Miner. Participants are encouraged to bring fabric and shirts for printing.
