Art-Making Workshop: Screen-printing & Poetry
May 20 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm PDT
You’re invited to come write poetry and make art in support of our salmon campaign! We will hear from Block Corporate Salmon about the grassroots organizing against GE Salmon and for Indigenous sovereignty. We will tap into our creative energy during the poetry-writing session, guided by Julie Searle, and use our poetry to create visual art about the cultural and ecological importance of salmon. David Solnit will guide us through learning how to silkscreen, a method for mass-producing a design or message on signs and clothing.
This is the second of two Art-Making Workshops, which are a part of our Art & Activism Series. Read about our first Art-Making Workshop, in which we made a banner for the Farmworker May Day March: https://cagj.org/2023/04/recap-banner-making-and-block-printing-workshop/
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
We are thrilled that Julie and David are coming up all the way from the Bay Area for May 20! Julie Searle is an educator, poet, and organizer with her teacher’s union. David Solnit was instrumental in the successful direct action at the heart of the 1999 WTO uprising, and has continued his art and activism in support of climate justice, farmworkers and many other movements for social justice. You may have heard David’s presentation about making art with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers during our February organizing meeting.
