We are All in it Together: Power of the Press

October 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The saying goes, “Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one” but what if the community’s words could be printed and freely shared…Thea Sizemore of Kavamore Press is doing just that.

Join us for an uplifting talk with Thea Sizemore about a social print project that is geared toward elevating the voices of the community. The project began early in the pandemic, providing an immediate and meaningful social justice service for the general public though protest poster production and distribution. A neighbor gifted a defunct newspaper box which was then up-cycled for the project and “Fresh Prints” Box was born. What happened after that is the beauty of human nature…. connection at a distance, community growth through the power of the press.

Using traditional equipment from the 1900s, hand set type and ink on paper, Sizemore has been able to build a new kinda “social media” that is tethered to the rich history of the printing press. Sizemore will show examples of posters, discuss working methods and most importantly share how interactions with strangers brought light to a dark pandemic period and started a long term art practice.
