Public projects

For over four years we have been using our portable silkscreen printmaking carts and methodology for participatory design in public spaces to engage communities and explore social and cultural situations. Through socially engaged workshops and events we have explored a range of themes, questions, and social issues that are urgent in our community. Questions have ranged from, "How do we create spaces for uncomfortable conversations?" to "What does solidarity mean to you?" and "How does art create health?". In exchange for drawings and writing, we offer print instruction using our mobile printmaking carts, creating a full exchange of ideas and skills. Our methodology, to create conversation as well as to collect images and drawings, has resulted in many graphic images generated directly through public engagement.
