What does solidarity mean to you?
October 15, 2015
We spent Saturday, October 17 with Combat Paper NJ (Montclair, NJ) and Mobile Print Power (Corona, Queens), setting up a day of interactive art production in the Interference Archive parking lot.
We invited everyone to come out and work with Combat Paper NJ to pulp and pull sheets of paper with their mobile paper making set-up, and work with Mobile Print Power to learn basic printing with their ice cream cart turned screen print studio. Both groups asked the question “What does solidarity mean to you?” and “How can military veterans and immigrants (and immigrants who are vets) work together to improve their communities?”
We were grateful to receive funding from the New York City chapter of the Awesome Foundation for this event.
