From Mexican worker organizing in the 1930s to Third World revolutions or the present-day struggle to overthrow fascism in the US, strong art and inspiring images have been indispensable weapons for liberation movements. Join movement artist Melanie Cervantes of Dignidad Rebelde for a timely conversation about the role of graphics and visual language in making revolution beautiful, irresistible, and achievable.

Dignidad Rebelde, a Bay Area graphic arts collaboration with Jesus Barraza and Melanie Cervantes, will frame this three hour workshop by providing participants a brief history of the role of political graphics in global liberation struggles as well as sharing examples of Dignidad Rebelde’s work. This history will be illustrated with a slideshow presentation. Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity for participants to learn how to pull a screen print. Participants will then use the screen printing images to add messages and additional content to their posters.
