This past Tuesday, November 18th, we teamed up with Haven Lin-Kirk and Advanced Design students at USC’s Roski School of Art and Design for a manifesto writing workshop. Attendees chose from multiple forms to begin their work, including typewriters, dip pens, and permanent marker. Imaginative quotes were plastered to the walls of the Helen Lindhurst Gallery for writers’ and designers’ inspiration. The mix of design-minded and literary creators made for a vast assortment of final pieces–ranging from a simple, handwritten page to elaborately drawn compositions. For now, the completed works are posted to the walls of the gallery, but on December 2nd, copies of manifestos will be distributed and bound into an anthology by each participant. It was an inspiring event, and the finalized collection of works is sure to be compelling!
The Roski Design program is hosting INTERVENTIONS through December 2nd, a series of workshops and events to foster creativity in terms of the design process. All events are free and materials are provided. Check them out: http://on.fb.me/1t9r5Nd
