Print is Power

Print is Power presents “Reclamation Nation”

Print is power are projects based around the medium of Print. Our first workshop project will be launched at the Hackney WickEd festival titled Reclamation Nation, which aims to give various members of the community & individuals  a voice to communicate and raise issues for debate.  Whether it’s a little comment on the buses running late or the recent troubles in the Middle Eat, individuals will get a chance to create their own “tongue & cheek” slogans, which will then be transformed into paper cut stencils that will be screen printed by them or by us during the workshop.

As there is a chance to produce multiples of these prints, the participant can take one away, whilst we keep a couple for display and one to hopefully be bound into a book for our archives after the project is complete.

“Voice your opinions- Print your passions”

Our First project kickstarted with great sucess and I would like to thank all who were involved with making it possible. Many thanks to Stour Space and Frontside Gardens for letting us use their incredible venues.

I would also like to thank all our friends who pitched in and gave their expertise and time to help with the event- All Cats are Grey prints, Juliette NoLions, Instant Vintage, Doug Sherman, NJGM (Nick Marsh), Becky Dell and Mark Rigney.

Last but not least, all the Hackney Wicked team, who worked so hard to make this years festival happen. And Jack Brown & Co from the Development Team for delievering a great educational programme this year!

Most importantaly, thanks to all of you who participated and “Reclaimed” with us! Without your opinions & input, this project would not exist. I am honestly overwhelmed with the response and the amazing work which was produced in such short space of time.

We are hoping to continue with this project for the next year, spreading the “power” nation wide. So please get in touch if you would like to host or participate in the project- and check the Facebook page for future workshop updates.

V& A “Club To Catwalk” Special-  Friday Late “Back to the 80s”

Print is Power is a yearlong project that consists of various creative projects based around the medium of Print. It aims to Engage, Explore, Communicate & Comment! Print your Passions!

Print is Power will be hosting a very special “Back to the 80”s” Reclamation Nation Workshop at the Victoria & Albert Friday Late program on the 25th October,, 6.30-10pm. Taking inspiration from their current “Club to Catwalk” exhibition, expect lots of Fluro fun, sweatbands, legwarmers and a special 80’s soundtrack to warm up the squeegees to. You can raise issues for debate by printing your own message and slogan as well as using one of our own.

Reclamation Nation has been very fortunate to be given exclusive use of Katharine Hamnett’s iconic “NO MORE FASHION VICTIMS” for the evening, which you will get a chance to print and take away with you.

Mission: Print is Power presents “Reclamation Nation”

Print is Power, are various projects based around the medium of Print. Our first workshop project Reclamation Nation, was launched at the Hackney WickEd festival 2013 to an overwhelming response.

The project aims to give various members of the community & individuals a voice to communicate and raise issues for debate. The participants are able to create their own “tongue & cheek” slogans/opinion, which are then transformed into a paper-cut stencil that can be screen-printed through pre-prepared screens by them or us during the workshop.

Last Saturday the 24th August saw our third “Reclamation Nation” Screen Print workshop at Fun Factory Art Project Space in Bethnal Green Road.

This time we even managed to screen a film about the inspirational screen printer Sister Corita called Primary Colours. We had a great turn out, despite the pouring rain and even had a small discussion about the theme of this workshop which was Street Art inspired.

Thanks again to all who participated and donated to our mission. To our PIP team for the day, Instant Vintage and NJGM, great job per usual. A special thanks to our hostess Ms Esther Fdez Castelo & Co  for letting us take over the Fun Factory space and making everyone so welcome. Much love. Here’s to the next one!

P.S. A special shout out to Roberto for making such a grand job of drying our prints and putting up such great washing lines x

We will be doing a “taster” workshop as part of the Turpentine Takeover  at The Effra Social in Brixton this Sunday 29th September from 4.00pm.
