Sanctuary: A Publication-Making Workshop

Over the past year, Baltimore-based interdisciplinary publishing initiative Press Press has been cultivating a collaborative manifesto with immigrants and immigrant-adjacent individuals to answer questions regarding sanctuary—what is it, how can it be created, and in turn, also protected? This manifesto is featured in Sentiments: Expressions of Cultural Passage, their newest publication featuring a compilation of writings, conversations, and artist projects exploring immigrant identity and notions of sanctuary.

In conjunction with Press Play Fair, join us in contributing to their ongoing expanded manifesto on sanctuary before the assembled contributions are freely distributed during the reading, Declaring our Sentiments, at 6 pm.

Price: Free with RSVP

Audience: Open to all adults regardless of experience.

Materials: All materials provided to students in class.

Press Press is an interdisciplinary publishing initiative established in 2014. Through an understanding of publishing as the act of gathering a public, Press Press’s streams of work include public cultural programming, an open-access publishing studio that’s based on an Exchange Economy, youth publishing workshops in an immigrant & refugee only space, and the ongoing production of print and digital publications. Press Press operates out of a storefront studio and library in Baltimore, MD.
