Event description

Description

Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative is a decentralized,
worker-owned cooperative of thirty printmaking
artists throughout Turtle Island. Grounded in the
transformative power of personal expression in
concert with collective action, Justseeds produces
collective portfolios that contribute graphics to
grassroots struggles for justice.

Last year, in collaboration with the new Poor People’s
Campaign in the U.S., Justseeds produced a print
portfolio for the renewed call to end poverty. Since
the original campaign organized by Martin Luther
King, Jr. in 1967, there have been growing broad and
deep social movements rooted in leadership of poor
people and aimed to transform the global structures
that engender the rotten fruits of poverty, inequality,
and oppression.

Justseeds artists Jesse Purcell and Paul Kjelland will
host an exhibit of the portfolio and a community
open studio. Thinking about and using the images
produced for the campaign, participants can learn
screen printing basics and create prints on paper and
fabric for the May Day march and other anti-poverty
organizing in events and actions.
