FREE POSTER WORKSHOP IN BRISTOL
On Saturday October 30th, 12-5pm, join Careful Now! for a day of political poster making inspired by the May '68 student protest posters.
Student barricades, police aggression and a general strike; the energy reaches a fever-pitch. The French president briefly flees to Germany. In May 1968 in Paris, students and teachers rename the School of Fine Arts the Popular Workshop. The school’s printing presses are used day and night to ignite a carnival of subversive posters.Lessons from the past? Ideas for the future?What will happen?
This is a drop-in, stay for as long as you like.
Get printing straight away. No fear!
Copy a Paris '68 poster of your choice.
We hope to have a messy corner for children to print with the adults.
We will provide all materials (and vegan snacks)
