In partnership with WePress, Directions Youth Services and Broadway Youth Resource Centre.
For queer youth, the defence of our identities is wrapped into survival. Self portraiture, a.k.a. Selfies, are a grounding mechanism and an easy route to self compassion and empowerment. This workshop encourages the mixing and blending of these two genres, drawing no difference between art history and contemporary visual media. Participants will walk away with works of art that combine text + imagery printed on an antique letterpress, in addition to new skills in self reflection and letterpress printing. No experience in either is necessary.
This workshop will take place over two days, Friday June 24 and Sunday June 26, starting at 2:30PM on each day.
Free of charge. Space is limited: click HERE to register using our online form.
