A Slogan Class: 3000 Word Chant!
Thursday 14 October, 6-7.30pm
Cooper Gallery

Building on the ideas in a workshop during sit-in #1, this workshop facilitated by designer Neil McGuire will explore ways of using words, letters and slogans, combined with some basic computer-aided randomisation, to create a collaborative digital protest generator.

Participants will also explore hand-drawn lettering and design, looking at the (many) ways letters (and words) carry meaning.

This is limited capacity in-person event. Register for free tickets on Eventbrite.

This event forms part of The Ignorant Art SchoolSit-in Curriculum #1
