The Mobile Studio Invites Public Participation

In honor of the occasion of Rosa Park’s 100th birthday celebration, the Mobile Studio has developed a hands-on, participatory series of activities that will manifest the community wishes of the children of Montgomery Alabama through co-creative art making and civic engagement. The children of Montgomery will be asked to reflect on Ms. Park’s vision for her city during her life time and write down their own vision and wishes for their city today. The visions of the children will be collected by the Rosa Parks Museum, and the Mobile Studio will then choreograph a series of paper-making, graphic design, silk-screen printing, poster production, mapping and design proposals with the Rosa Parks Museum Ambassadors and the greater community. The Studio will guide this process so that the children’s wishes become both graphic messages and visions for community transformation that take inspiration from the past, add engagement in the present toward actions that will change the future for the benefit of all of Montgomery’s citizens. This birthday celebration is designed as more than a remembrance or even an event, it is an unfolding process of education and engagement with our sense of place designed to activate wishes inspired by Rosa Parks into the future. All are welcome to participate in this exciting project. For more information, please see:
