This Is Not A Gun is a traveling ceramic workshop that catalyzes conversation around human rights violations and systemic racism through collaborative making. In this hands-on workshop, participants are invited to sculpt from clay a series of ubiquitous objects that have been mistaken for guns by police officers in shootings of unarmed individuals. Jade Thacker and Jessica Angima offer a series of questions for discussion during the making, featuring readings from the recently published “31 Objects” on Montez Press. This is the 8th workshop since March 2017.
The workshop will take place immediately following a roundtable discussion, "In Response to Gun Violence." Attendees to the discussion are encouraged to stay for the hour-long workshop. Thisisnotagun.com
