Want to try something a little different for happy hour? How about a creative project letting you engage with the politics and history or protest?

In partnership with the DC Public Library, the Goethe-Institut is offering a poster making workshop as part of its event series on the protests of 1968. In Washington, DC in 1968, residents and visitors of Resurrection City drew and painted on a temporary plywood wall, proclaiming messages of solidarity among different races, cultures, and regions of the country in the struggle for human rights. Be inspired by this history as you create your own signs.

Which change would you stand for? Which problems do you want to draw attention to? How much has actually changed since 1968? Do we even need posters to express our political opinions in the Internet era with its numerous social media channels? This free workshop offers the opportunity to investigate all of these questions and to discuss creative and political opinions as part of a group while exchanging ideas.

No registration required. Space in the workshop will be available on a "first come first served" basis.

This event is part of the event series 1968: A Time of Uproar in Europe and the US.
