“REBELATE! Radical Poster Making for Our Liberation”
A Screen Printing Workshop by Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barraza of Dignidade Rebelde
There has never been a movement for social change without art and visual communications being central to that movement. Graphics in particular are powerful living reminders of various struggles for justice. Jesus and Melanie frame the workshop by giving participants a brief history of the role of political posters in liberation struggles as well as sharing their own work . This history will be illustrated via a short slideshow presentation. Following the presentation there will be a screen printing demonstration and an opportunity for participants to print posters of premade designs provided by Dignidad Rebelde. The goal of this workshop is discuss the role of design, art and culture in community transformation and movement building and to give participants the opportunity to learn the screen printing process as well as get hands on experience printing posters.
