PROTEST BANNER LENDING LIBRARY
WORKSHOP VAANDELS MAKEN
March 31, 2023 - April 29, 2023
As part of the protest procession parade exhibition , the Zeeuws Museum is organizing banner-making workshops together with American artist Aram Han Sifuentes (they/them). For this purpose, the museum is temporarily affiliated with the Protest Banner Lending Library . Created after the 2016 election in which Trump was elected president, this project stems from Aram's interest in sharing textile skills with a social and political purpose.
By designing, creating and lending banners together, the Protest Banner Lending Library contributes to community building, social action and people and groups develop their voice and power.
The banners cover a variety of personal and social issues, including: the housing crisis, climate change and sustainability, LGBTQIA+ solidarity and refugee rights. During the workshop you will be invited to think about personal or social themes that you consider important. Do you want to make your voice heard? Sign up and create your own banner.
