Printers Without Margins Fellowship Program
Printers Without Margins will offer a one-month printmaking fellowship to five individuals who want to create radical printed matter for an organization or a community at large. Pickwick will provide access to their printshop, instruction, materials, creative guidance and a small stipend to each fellow. The fellowship is intended to give someone who wouldn’t otherwise have access to the equipment and community support that Pickwick provides. One edition of 100 signs, posters, pamphlets, zines, postcards, etc. will be created related to the issue they bring to the table. Possible topics can include issues around: racism, LGBTQIAA+ rights, incarceration, homelessness, gentrification, environmental change, politics, healthcare, and so forth. Distribution of the printed matter to the public will be an integral component of each residency; these could include posting in public spaces, dispersal during canvassing/community conversations, mailings via post, or any creative method of dissemination. A panel discussion will culminate the project late in the year.
