Who I Am: Identity Through Print

Join us as we create short-form poster poetry centered around identity, social justice, and visions of the future.

Identity is is a key aspect of self-determination: how we define ourselves affects how we dream, fight for, and console one another. 

This is no more evident than in the concise words of a poster that defined the 1968 Memphis Sanitation Strike, and that still carries weight with us to this day: “I Am A Man."

Join us as we use our Vandercook letterpress to declare to the world, and remind ourselves, who we are. 

Space is limited: pre-registration required: see website link at left.

All materials provided. This workshop is held in conjunction with the Center for African American Poetry and Poetics "Thinking in Creative Practice: A Day of Creativity and Reflection." Facilitated by Jasmine Green, Center for Creativity.

Friday, October 8 at 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Text & conText Lab, Hillman Library 3960 Forbes Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15260
