Hi! My name is Joni, and I'm a local artist and writer. I am writing a book about artists in the Northwest and would like to interview you if you are open to it. My project consists of profiling the artisans, crafters, thinkers, makers, and bards of Portland and beyond. I like your work and would love to meet with you. If you don't think you will have time to meet with me for a 20-30 minute interview, perhaps you would consider answering a few questions via email.
sure! sorry if it took me forever to reply… I have no idea how long this email has been here. best, Lis
The founding initiative of Cooperative Image Group, Post Our Bills utilizes abandoned buildings as opportunities to brighten communities by transforming plywood window coverings into public murals.
Youth artists create their own images and learn to implement them through silk-screen techniques and stencil production. Young artists develop through peer-mentorship: working together with more experienced high-school-age printmakers, and led by professional artists. As the printed boards beautify vacant buildings across the city, youth and community gain a voice in the appearance of their neighborhoods.
So Fresh Printing is a core group of youth who are using the skills they learned as apprentices in the Co-op Clothing Tech program to create their own youth-operated screen-printing business. As a program initiated, operated, and sustained entirely by youth, So Fresh Printing exemplifies the goals of Co-op Image’s youth empowerment model.
I am really jazzed about the following things: What does it mean to collaborate? What does it mean to work with others? What is holding our community back? How can art work in my life?
Some key words/terms that were mentioned: self-value, new opportunities, confidence, reinforcement, partnership and collaboration. *make this term a collaborative journey.
Showing them that they have skills and self worth that is valuable and will help them become a better person.
The relationship is a process, and the process is as important and almost more important than the finished product. Process makes us equal and easier for us to relate to them and vice versa.
What does it mean to collaborate?
What does it mean to work with others?
What is holding our community back?
How can art work in my life?I also wanted to mention where I think I can offer the best input: I’d like to help out and be present during the Wednesday sessions, chatting and participating. I would also love to help with content development for the site, whatever that ends up needing to be. Reflection on each session? Re-caps of the projects we do? Basically I enjoy writing and can hopefully help communicate what we’re doing to a bigger audience.
