Arts Organizing to Win Social Change

Picture 1 of 10

On May 7th, Earth Justice Ministries and Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County sponsored a wonderful workshop:  “Arts Organizing to Win Social Change”.  We had 17 enthusiastic participants.

David Solnit came from the Bay Area to offer this training.  David is a mass non-violent direct action organizer who is 350.org’s North American Arts Organizer. He showed slides of his organizing for a wide range of movements, including Peoples Climate March, Coalition of Immokalee Workers, Standing Rock, and Idle No More.  He demonstrated methods of street drama, building puppets, stenciling and banner-making.  The group had a great time making a large banner “Save Bear River”, and made several smaller banners for use in our community.  I think we all have a greater appreciation of using color to emphasize our message. We have already started using the Bear River banner for gatherings at the NID on Board Meeting days.   

Thank you David Solnit, Peace and Justice Center, Earth Justice Ministries, and the fabulous participants for making this fun workshop possible!
