Art as Propaganda Workshop
Artist Hannah Blair will present slides of the beautiful hand-embroidered banners the suffragettes created for their protests and demonstrations. We’ll discuss tactics for making effective banners, and introduce an ongoing banner-making workshop geared toward demonstrations on the streets and in community spaces. Learn to sketch your designs using gouache paint, and lend your brainpower to coming up with powerful messages and images to use in building the social justice movement. Further work sessions will take place prior to the Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights (BACORR) Day of Action for Reproductive Justice on January 23rd, 2010. All levels of experience welcome!
The workshop will take place at New Valencia Hall, 625 Larkin St, Suite 202, San Francisco. The fee is $10-20 sliding scale, materials included.
