The BioDemocracy Mobilization needs YOUR hands...
To help us create inspiring ART that will bring our message to the public. During this week, we have Open Studios at SPIRAL Q PUPPET THEATER (3114 Spring Garden St, 2nd floor) to create art, banners, signs and giant mobile puppets. Please help us!! Join us at these times: Sunday, June 12, 12 noon to 5 pm; and June 13, 14 and 16, 5:30 to 9 pm. Whether you have fancy art skills or not, come to Spiral Q! Help us express our alternatives to the biotech industry: a vision of fair trade, local food sovereignty, healthcare for all, community power, honest science and biodiversity. Experienced artists will be present to guide our work -- this is a great way to meet new friends and learn new skills!
Through its puppet parades and pageants, Spiral Q Puppet Theater is
resurrecting and reclaiming an almost forgotten form of people's
theater to amplify and unite the power and vitality of those working for change through art-making, protest, and civic theater.
