This collaborative project was presented at Atelier de l’ile, in Val David, QC, in June 2018. Participants used the print studio as a starting off point to explore the history of print culture in community-building. Engaging in an art-based example of citizen participation, they explored their own town with a self-guided walk, documented their experiences, and worked both individually and collaboratively to create their assembled images. All drawings and images were created by the participants.
