With panelists from various backgrounds including both visual and performance art, and workshop topics from direct action skills to bannermaking to street theater, we seek to connect artists with relevant political struggles and help activists and organizers engage their issues in creative ways.
Mayday in the Twin Cities will be a perfect opportunity to exercise our new skills–either in the Powderhorn Park parade and festival, the International Workers’ Day immigrant rights march in St. Paul, or other events–and build movements that are creative, effective, and inspiring.
