2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Li will continue work on her Graffiti in the Grass interactive graphic novel project, conceived and written by Li and illustrated by Eric Battle. Li will collaborate with a professional colorist to add full color to the three completed black and white promotional posters, develop and design a site-specific survival "pocket map," and design and print the survival zine, Pop Prophecy. The zines and pocket maps will be distributed at free emergency preparedness and direct action workshops Li will facilitate at North Philly Peace Park, designated partner sites across "Peace Town," and other select public events, community gatherings, and direct actions this summer.
