What does it mean to be an activist? Activism figures prominently in all kinds of museums, seen both in exhibition content and in field-wide discussions about institutions’ social responsibility. Using environmental activism as our lens, this hands-on workshop offers accessible tools for fostering a community of young artist-activists in the museum or classroom. Together we will consider art as a powerful mode of expression using close-looking techniques and printing our own posters about compelling environmental issues. Join this forum to examine the power of art in message-making and how activism can be a positive, simple and powerful part of daily life.
