Undoing Border Imperialism

Undoing-Borders-Reverse

Here’s a version of the image Radical Design School collaborated on for the launch of Harsha Walia’s Undoing Border Imperialism in Toronto.

It was a fun process (though somewhat tight for time) and a good opportunity for us to experiment with different levels of collaboration, from joint brainstorming and presentation of different concepts to one primary person doing the illustration, with another handling the type and background, and a team of two doing the final step of screenprinting the night before the big event.

Part of a street-postering campaign in Toronto in support of Grassy Narrows in October/November this year. 3′ x 4.5′ portrait and 6′ x 9′ landscape posters, large format B+W printing with title lettering screenprinted in red.

Unfortunately, so far Premier Wynne’s answer (delivered just in time for Xmas) appears to be “yes”, so there’s much more work to be done.

No Pride in Apartheid

I’m late to share this, but we recently wrapped-up a collaboration during Pride with Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QuAIA).

We had a great strategy meeting with folks from QuAIA, Mary from Justseeds and Radical Design School people in May. One of the images I came up with was picked for printing on placards, fundraising posters, and for live printing on clothing at the Dyke March and Pride Parade.

Pride was really the ideal event for this kind of action because people were so willing to part with their clothing momentarily so that we could print with them. The vibe was great and I think it was a really appropriate use for screenprinting as a tool for collective action.

In the lead-up to the Pride activities, a group of dedicated people came together to prep the screens, print posters and placards over several days, and make sure that everything was in place for live printing. It was truly impressive.
