WRAPture Woodblock Workshop

February 27 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

FREE

Get paid to make art and learn about climate change!

Bangladeshi-American artist and climate activist Monica Jahan Bose is launching a new temporary public art display and needs your help to create it!  Monica and her team are working on WRAPture, a public art installation that will wrap 5 buildings in Historic Anacostia on April 4, April 14, and May 9. Monica is collaborating with community members to create these saris.

Monica seeks paid assistants* (over age 14) to sign up for the workshops.  Participants will learn woodblock printing, create artwork that will be displayed, and discuss and learn about the effects of climate change.  All ages and genders welcome.  All spaces and accessible by wheelchair/walker.  We will provide sign language interpreters and other interpreters whenever possible.

*Spots are LIMITED. We will be working on 2 saris per workshop and only have spots for 12-15 people each time. Please email email hidden; JavaScript is required if you need to release your reservation. You must arrive on time and fully participate to receive payment.

This project is made possible by a generous grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts. The project is also supported by our community partners Anacostia Arts Center and We Act Radio.
