Queer Ancestors Project Resists!
This workshop is for transgender, non-binary, lesbian, bisexual, gay, queer, questioning, two-spirit, and intersex people, aged 18 to 28, who are interested in creating prints exploring resistance. We’ll spend 14 weeks together studying linocut printmaking and resistance-oriented images, and supporting one another as we create. The workshop is free and supplies are included, but space is limited. No experience is required. Travel stipends of $150 will be available to each participant.
What does the world feel like to you? What’s got to change so you and those you love can bloom? We’ll gather, explore these questions, and create images that envision the way to a world with justice, peace, and joy. You’ll learn to make linocut prints addressing whatever issues are compelling to you – such as prison abolition, Trans rights, white supremacy, climate change, student debt, poverty, immigration, reproductive justice, healthcare, homelessness – let’s not forget pleasure! – and more. In keeping with QAP's larger mission, you'll be invited to make one print honoring social justice activism from the past that inspires you. Our workshop will culminate in a public printmaking party at SOMArts, where you’ll print your images on t-shirts, bags, patches, posters, and more!
Chrysalis Studio Director Katie Gilmartin (she/they) will teach the workshop, along with guest speakers.
Be supported as you develop your creativity,
create prints about resistance, and build community
with other Queer and Trans artists!
