2012 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Eli will create a mobile print lab that will travel throughout the city engaging queer people of all ages and backgrounds to create hand set letterpress posters drawing on their personal experiences and struggles inspired by the practices of direct action art collectives such as Gran fury and Act Up, who created iconic slogans such as Silence=Death. Participants will use their own experiences to create a new generation of queer slogans specific to the struggles and triumphs of queer people today. With the help of the participants themselves and key community partners, these posters will then be disseminated widely throughout the city, particularly in the neighborhoods where participants live and in visible public places such as, telephone polls, vacant buildings, and bus shelters.
