Proposal:

Eco-Activist Artmaking – Workshop
December 2009

SEA Change artist collective would like to teach workshops  entitled “Eco-Activist Artmaking” in Copenhagen during the COP 15 conference. During the workshop, we will show photos of eco-activist artwork, display eco-activist paintings & demonstration signs (see below), and assist participants in creating their own signs. SEA Change will bring silkscreens for printing letters. The silkscreens will make any phrase easy and fast to reproduce at a large scale in an aesthetically pleasing/eye-catching manner. These demonstration signs will be carried in the December 12 climate change demonstration. These workshop could be one day long or one week long. They could occur at  Klimaforum09 as well as artistic institutions in Copenhagen (schools, museums, and galleries).

SEA Change is in the process of creating artistic demonstration signs for the demonstrations at COP 15 (See photos below). Two of the protest signs will be oil paintings of future cities and community members “barn-raising” renewable energy, 5 meters x 3 meters in size. One sign will be an image of a future city. The other large demonstrations signs will be silkscreened and text-based—reading climate activist related phrases, such as: People and Planet before Profit…Polar Bears or Power Plants?…Dilution is Not the Solution to Pollution…Outgrow Oil

We are requesting the Klimaforum and any interested Copenhagen artistic institutions contact us if they are interested in hosting our workshop. We would also like:
