Get inspired by the exhibition Imaginary Dwellings and learn how to make your own protest poster through a stencil screen printing workshop with Self Help Graphics & Art’s Barrio Mobile Art Studio (BMAS). Explore the themes of the exhibition, such as land rights, settler colonialism, forced displacement, and migration, and share the message you want to express through screen printing.

Curated by Marvella Muro and Natalie Godinez, Imaginary Dwellings addresses the systemic inequities that perpetuate housing insecurity for oppressed peoples. This event will also feature walkthroughs of the exhibition with the curators. Plus, artists in residence at 18th Street Arts Center’s Airport campus will host open studios where visitors can see their exciting work in progress.
