Open Call for Members | Due May 1 5:00 PM
Who we are
Living Proof Print Collective is a community-based printshop dedicated to directly performing and supporting anti-oppression work in the Twin Cities through arts education and collaboration. We work from a basement studio* are located in the Central neighborhood of South Minneapolis. For the past two and a half years we have partnered with social justice and youth-serving organizations to offer free classes and design support for movements. List of projects here: https://wehavelivingproof.wordpress.com/projects/
*Regretfully, the shop is not wheelchair accessible and may be difficult for those with limited mobility.
What we want
Members with a background in printmaking, specifically screenprinting, who share our commitment to social justice and advocacy through art-making. Involvement in the collective includes outreach through teaching and community projects, shop/collective upkeep, and personal projects. People of color and queer/trans* folks strongly desired.
Please, write a bit about yourself for us:
- What is your experience with making art?
- What is your experience with anti-oppression work?
- Why do you like printmaking?
- What do you want to do with LP?
Expect response within a week of deadline.
Unfortunately I am not a printmaker, I am a poet. But I find this incredibly exciting! Maybe I ought to go become a printmaker…
Thanks for reaching out! Printmaking can be a wonderful medium to share poetry (like artist books!). Some of our collective are writers as well 🙂
