Proceeds will go to the Social Justice Open Studio in Toronto and the Future Design Lab that will be hosted by the Allied Media Conference in Detroit in June 2014. (June 19-22nd).
CHILDCARE: We are trying to make the creation/learning stations as CHILD-FRIENDLY as possible- so this will be a place for children to come learn, create and have fun! We will also have an on-site ECE childcare provider, if this is helpful for anyone. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any further details.
Some things you should bring (if you have access to them):
– material/cloth (for screen-printing/stencilling)
– a laptop (for various computer-related trainings)
– a camera/phone (to document and share photos/video)
