What is Print Futures?
The Winter 2022 edition of Print Futures will consist of three short presentations, time for Q&A, and break-out sessions hosted by printing peers. Please join us and be inspired by the extraordinary work being created by the next generation of letterpress printers from all over the world.
Print Futures is a free, quarterly series that supports new voices in letterpress by building bridges between emerging printers doing great work in educational institutions, community centers, and professional shops. It is co-produced by Partners in Print (PiP) and Letterpress Educators of Art & Design (LEAD).
Who should register?
This event is geared toward emerging letterpress artists—whether college students, interns, students at community centers, or independent letterpress enthusiasts. All levels of experience are welcome.
