The Art of Resistance Political Artists' Conference
The 2004 conference is the first annual gathering of political artists
from around the country and the world. The conference will consist of two
days of workshops, speakers and events exploring political art.
Conference participants will receive hands-on skills and practical
knowledge, a broader understanding of the history and current state of
political art and benefit from the rare opportunity of being able to spend
a weekend in a building full of political artists from across the country.
We hope to strengthen the movement of artists for global justice by
