Screen Printing party in support of March For Our Lives
March 20, 2018, 7:00pm - March 20, 2018, 7:30pm
Join us for a pre- March for our Lives screen printing party to have swag customized with this simple but powerful design by local artist Zoë Doucette. Whether to march in the streets of DC or wear locally, this design connects our Berkshire community with the declaration: "MAY ALL BEINGS BE SAFE."
Bring any fiber material - tote bags, t-shirts, fabric scraps - to have personalized in advance of Saturday's March to demand that the lives and safety of our children and communities become a priority and that we end this epidemic of mass school shootings. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard. Many thanks to North Adams Makers' Mill for providing the space and talent for this collective showing of support and solidarity. Donations welcome to support Everytown for Gun Safety.

It's a fascinating look at futuristic possibilities for understanding and shaping what we remember.
