Description

Please join us for a Community Printmaking Action Plan on April 27th at PNCA in PRINT MEDIA's Printmaking Studio (Room #209). This event is to support and produce works of art from the front lines of the social justice movement in Portland Oregon with Don't Shoot PDX.

A noon time conversation and community building session will kick off the event to announce the goals and plans for the printmaking workshops. Speakers include Teressa Raiford of Don't Shoot Portland and Mike Murawski of the Portland Art Museum. The conversation will transition into a collaborative printmaking workshop and community print action focusing on large scale woodcuts and screenprinting.

The collaboratively produced artwork will be exhibited at the Portland Art Museum during the Upstanders Festival: Voices of the Unheard event on May 27, which will be a day of spoken word, restorative justice, music and media, interactive workshops, art zines, and poster making in support of Black Lives Matter, houselessness, and building tolerance for immigrants. Upstanders Festival is a social justice extravaganza, shining a light on the bravery and brilliance of activism and changemakers in our midst. Produced by the Museum of Impact, this event series transforms audiences from bystanders to Upstanders through a variety of activities to enhance equity and creative expression. Presented in conjunction with the special exhibition Constructing Identity: Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art, on view through June 18.

This is a project in support of the community action and art by Don’t Shoot PDX in collaboration with Pacific Northwest College of Art PRINT MEDIA, Portland Art Museum and Marylhurst University Art Program.
