Speedwell Projects is hosting a panel of our Printers Without Margins Fellows in conjunction with Making Migration Visible: Traces, Tracks and Pathways.
This year we had the opportunity to give six activists a fellowship at the shop. Each Fellow was guided through the process of printing and distributing their own supporting materials. This panel will host and highlight these fellows as they talk about their activism, the printed matter they created at Pickwick and disseminated into their larger communities. Posters, Postcards, broadsides, books and apparel were created in service of youth advocacy, fighting sexploitation, immigration, communities of color, and de-stigmatizing addiction. Come to learn about the entire Printers Without Margins project and see the work made by these artist-activists.
We are excited to host Get Ready Weekly at Pickwick this sunday for a postcard printing workshop and writing to our reps party
11:00-2:00 Drop into Pickwick between 11-2 and print a postcard to be sent to our representatives. Letterpress Printing and Screen printing will be demonstrated and you will be guided as you print postcards with us. If you are an experienced carver, bring your own pre-carved 4x6 mounted linoleum block, and we will help you print it on one of our presses. Donations* will be accepted for materials and instruction.
*Cash or Paper: card stock, poster board, or other heavyweight paper.
2:00-4:00pm Join us for a write-in as we reach out to our members of Congress about the issues that concern us most. We'll have an overview of the upcoming House and Senate agendas, plus the addresses for Maine's representatives.
