Workshop facilitated by designer Neil McGuire exploring 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 event forms part of The Ignorant Art School, Sit-in Curriculum #1.
This is a limited capacity in-person event.
