In a bi-weekly workshop community members are invited to help make banners for the movement. Each workshop will support a specific movement organization and focus on making banners based on their messaging. The workshop will start with a short discussion about the movement organization and their messaging.

This is a great event for families and people that are not able to be in the streets at demonstrations but want to support movement groups. The workshops will be set up outside in front of the PO Box. Participants are invited to register by emailing Aaron Hughes aarhughes@gmail.com or just drop in. All participants will be asked to wear masks and distance.

This Banner Build Workshops For The Movement is inspired by the long tradition of art builds and banner making workshops. It is specifically important to note the movement art builds by the Art Build Workers, Justseeds Artists Cooperative members, and activist David Solnit and the ongoing project Protest Banner Lending Library by Aram Han Siftersuentes. If you don’t know about these important projects please check them out.

Activists and organizers in need of a banner are invited to request banners and share messaging by emails Aaron Hughes aarhughes@gmail.com

This project is part of a PO Box artist’s residency by Aaron Hughes.
