Jul 20 2017 — Oct 29 2017
SANCTUARY PRINT SHOP is a functioning print shop operating out of YBCA’s Front Door.

Print your own poster at a workshop with founders Sergio De La Torre and Chris Treggiari, who aim to raise awareness about the concept of being a “sanctuary city” as well as disseminate information on the recently enacted immigration policies and how they impact our community. Sharing art and infographics, leading silkscreen workshops, and distributing printed material throughout the city, Sanctuary Print Shop serves as a resource center and catalyst for the movement to uphold immigrants’ rights.

Free Printing Workshops

From July 25—October 19, there will be bi-weekly participatory printing workshops and programs conducted by artists on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2PM—4PM to provide a space for visitors to create their own silkscreened posters and prints in expression of their support for the sanctuary ordinance of San Francisco.
