Printing Movement Symbols: a hands-on workshop!
April 8, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| Free
In the streets or in our archive, we see so many symbols in the world around us. How do social movements use symbols to convey their message? How can a symbol make a sign more effective, and how can it illustrate all the ideas and feelings contained in one movement for change?
This hands-on workshop is for all ages! We’ll spend a bit of time talking about the symbols we see on the exhibition walls right now at Interference Archive as part of Finally Got the News: The Print Legacy of the U.S. Radical Left, 1970-1979, as well as the symbols we see on signs at protests and marches.
After that, we’ll carve our own symbols into foam printing boards and make our own mini-zines and stickers by sharing the symbols we’ve carved and printing them together.
This event is part of an exhibition that is funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant.
