Community Poster Making 101, was a two-day collaborative community education workshop held at Eastie Farm in East Boston that taught about the history of printmaking as a form of protest, it gave the community members a chance to learn about eviction defense and places they could contact if they needed help, and gave participants supplies and knowledge to create their own prints from kits provided, the knowledge to create their own imagery, and the tools needed to reproduce and use this technique to further their voice and artistic practice from their own personal studios wherever they might be.
