Collage artists with a passion for equal rights and equitable opportunities for all are invited to apply for Kolaj Institute’s Social Justice Collage Workshop, a four-week program designed to provide a foundation for the intersection of collage and social justice with the end result of creating a collage for an exhibition in May.

The workshop is designed to explore the purpose, meaning, context, history and problems of social justice through collage making, discussion, examination of other artists’ work, and hearing from dynamic speakers who make and curate social justice collage. Participants will engage with each other via Slack and meet once a week on Zoom for four weeks.

Artists in the workshop will work alongside each other to conceptualize, contextualize, and create social justice-themed collages. At the end of the workshop, everyone will be invited to have one of their collages included in the May 2021 exhibition at the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice along with Elaine Tassy’s piece, Say Their Names.
