The next day, Monday 7:00-10:00PM we will be printing and sharing prints!

By the end of the workshop, participants will make their image into a one-color print that they can put on paper or fabric to share and post widely and wildly. We will cover print shop basics, introduce materials and alternative inking and printing processes.

Due to space limitations, we can only allow 5 participants per 2-day workshop. Please sign up only if you're sure you can attend both days.

Facilitator's experience: 
Living Proof is a group of young screenprinters who use the medium to increase arts access and support emerging voices in partnership with educational and activist projects in the Twin Cities.

South Side Free Skool Roots to Revolution: Food February Workshop Series

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Repeats every week until Sun Feb 19 2012 .
Sunday, February 5, 2012 - 12:00 - 14:00
Sunday, February 12, 2012 - 12:00 - 14:00
Sunday, February 19, 2012 - 12:00 - 14:00
Three consecutive workshops on winter gardening skills, food justice theory and action

The mission of this workshop series is to connect with our community and enhance our skills and knowledge about healthy food production and accessibility.

All workshops run from 12-2pm at the Minnehaha Free Space, 3458 Minnehaha Ave., Minneapolis MN 55406 (on the #7 bus line, near #21, #23 and light rail)

Are you interested in building more resilient, sustainable and just communities? Over three Sunday workshops, FOOD FEBRUARY will merge the theory and practice of food justice. Together, we'll grow the conversation by learning from people already getting their hands dirty in the Twin Cities. No matter if you have little experience or a lot, come to connect with others, share knowledge, and nurture community sustainability.

Each workshop will build off the others, but can also be attended individually.

February 5 – WINTER GARDENING SKILLS
Learn about winter gardening, including how to grow small herbs and microgreens and how to sprout at home. This workshop will give practical tips for building sustainability at home.

February 12 – FOOD JUSTICE THEORY
This second workshop will transition from self-sustainability to the systems that affect access to food. Join local food justice activists to converse about why our communities often lack culturally appropriate, affordable and nutritious food with which to sustain ourselves.

February 19 – ACTION!
Come to this final workshop to explore what's being done locally to put food justice theory and practice to work for solidarity, not just charity. Bradi Baker from Project Sweetie Pie, an urban gardening program for North Minneapolis youth, will share her experiences teaching about growing our own food and reconnecting with the land in a culturally appropriate way.

Facilitator's experience: 
South Side Free Skool is a chapter of EXCO that puts on workshop series focused on basic human needs, connecting with outside community members and using hands-on and theory-based learning techniques.
