Community printing nights
2012 – current
I have hosted over fifteen free silkscreen workshops, mostly at the AS220 Printshop, focused on activism. Participants are invited to bring their own garments to print on, or print on donated bags and paper. Dozens of designs have been featured, but none more than the Black Lives Matter design by Ian Cozzens.
This events expanded into festivals including PVD Fest 2017 and Pronk 2016. The two videos featured are from Black Lives Matter print night where over 500 people were in attendance, supported by almost 30 volunteers. This event is heavily supported my many local artists, but none more than Jacques Bidon who has been instrumental in almost every event.
Full Moon Market
2016 – currentI am the creator of a yearly event focused on the art, design and innovation of Providence youth. At least half of the artists are showing work for the first time. Vital support, such as training for first time sellers, is provided.
