2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

In the Water Ways project, Bri and Meg will illustrate four pen-and-ink posters exposing the environmental dangers of oil and gas industries that threaten the health of the most vulnerable populations in the Greater Philadelphia area. They will gather interviews from affected people and work with them to draw their stories. Through regional storytelling events and workshops featuring the posters as a teaching tool, Water Ways will raise awareness, fundraise, and build connections between regional resistance groups.
