Advisory Group for Activist Poster Programming


Hey guys,

I am pasting an email below. It is for an opportunity to get on to an advisory group for Common Press. Common Press is an awesome letter press on campus. It is for a PAID position that will meet once a month till Feb. If you are interested in printmaking or activism this is a good way to jump in.

Common Press seeks 5 – 8 student advisors to participate in planning of a February series of programs focused on activist poster art. Supported by Sachs Arts, this program will bring Josh MacPhee of the Justseeds Collective to campus for a series of workshops with students. Additional components include an exhibit of a Justseeds portfolio and a panel discussion with several artists creating activist work.

The student advisory committee will meet monthly from late October to early February to contribute to program planning, advising on workshop structure, outreach, portfolio selection for exhibit, and planning panel participants and panel discussion questions. Commitment will also include some email discussion in between meetings. We hope that Committee Members will be key participants in the resulting programs and/or will work to solicit student participants.

Eligible Penn students will be paid for meeting time at the same rate as Common Press student assistants — $9.00 – $10.50 per hour depending on class year. Please send a letter of interest to Mary Tasillo, Common Press Studio Manager,


Mary Tasillo

Common Press Studio Manager
