As part of Gathering Autonomy: Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, the Creative Activism Lab will be coordinating a series of workshops and other programming to foster dialogue surrounding social justice issues addressed within Justseeds work, to ground those issues on a local level, and to make work that can support local actions and action networks.
Our March 20th workshop will focus on issues associated with climate change using Resourced, a Justseeds portfolio, as a jumping off point. A group of Justseeds artists will speak about Resourced and other media they created for the People’s Climate March in NYC this past fall. Portland Rising Tide will then present on our current campaigns and actions. We will then all have a roundtable style conversation about what kind of tactical art we can create to best support upcoming action(s), and then, best of all, we will COLLECTIVELY MAKE REALLY COOL TACTICAL ART.
Feel free to show up at any time for the duration of the workshop and join us!
