Street Mural Workshop

Sunday, October 25th
10AM - 12PM Pacific Time
Richmond, CA

This is an in-person event with COVID safety protocols (the event will be outdoor). The exact location will be sent to you after you register. 

Painting street murals is a participatory, creative way to assert ourselves in public space and is a Bay Area tradition over the last decade by movements for Indigenous sovereignty, climate justice, economic justice and Black Lives Matter. In this hands-on in-person workshop we'll learn about designing and painting street murals using non-toxic tempera and clay pain

This workshop is designed especially for teams planning pro-democracy street murals to stop a likely election-related coup attempt, but is also open to other interested individuals.

For more about using street murals as an act of beautiful resistance, check out this article about David and Julie's work.

Wear painting clothes. We will be outdoors and in the sun, so bring sun protection and water. 


David Solnit is an East Bay artist and arts organizer, centering the arts to build movements, nurture mass participation and to help change the narratives. 



Julie Searle is a public school teacher, an organizer with her local teachers’ union, and a community-based artist.

Julie and David co-led the Climate Justice Mural Project facilitating large scale, multi-block street mural actions together with Idle No More SF Bay and the Society of Fearless Grandmothers in 2018 (Rise for Climate) and 2019 (Climate Strike). 

COVID SAFETY: As an expression of community care, everyone is expected to wear a mask, maintain distancing, and practice sanitation for the duration of the event. We will have extra masks, gloves and hand sanitizer. If you or someone you have been in contact with has COVID symptoms, please do not attend.
