About the Program

Learn a skill to amplify your voice for good during an intergenerational protest banner–making workshop! Part of artist Aram Han Sifuentes's ongoing project Protest Banner Lending Library, this afternoon program includes a curator spotlight talk, a slogan development activity, and instruction and materials to create a no-sew fabric banner appliquéd with your own meaningful message. This activity is recommended for participants ages 8 and up; all ages are welcome to attend.

Program details:

Participants will have the option to keep their banner or donate it to the Protest Banner Lending Library within Talking Back to Power for others to check out and use during marches, classes, and performances.
