Join us on Friday for an all day workshop with our guest Silas Munro! Grab your free ticket here!

About the workshop: To proclaim is both to announce publicly and declare something emphatically with emphasis. What do you care about? In your life? In your school? In design? In the wider world? If you could change any for the better, what would that entail? How might you go about that and enlist kindred folk in the process?

In this one-day workshop you are invited to write and design your own proclamation in type and image form. Building on the notion of a manifesto, but one that is not so patriarchal, extractive or exclusionary, what truth asks to be spoken? Maybe it’s more of a typographic whisper or mutter. Come to converse and make, while working individually and collectively to work out what you want in a designed world.
