Burnaby Residents Opposed to KinderMorgan’s Pipeline Expansion (BROKE) and artist Gabriel Saloman would like to invite you to a poster-making print workshop at the Burnaby Art Gallery this coming Tuesday evening. This workshop is part of a series of workshops in preparation for the People’s Procession & Rally Against the Pipeline, and will focus on poster and sign making, exploring image making and bold messaging using silkscreen printing techniques. The workshop is by donation and everyone is welcome – no previous experience is necessary.
The People’s Procession & Rally Against the Pipeline is being organized by Gabriel Saloman and BROKE, in connection with an upcoming exhibition at Unit/Pitt Projects in Vancouver, in order to raise awareness and mobilize people regarding the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline, the expansion of oil storage tanks on Burnaby Mountain and the enlargement of the tanker dock at Westridge. BROKE is calling for residents to join us on April 12, along with the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, the City of Burnaby, MP Kennedy Stewart, Greenpeace and many others, bringing creative expressions of their opposition.
DATE: Tuesday, March 11 | 6:30-8:30
LOCATION: The Burnaby Art Gallery, 6344 Deer Lake Avenue, Burnaby
