You can use the idea of this room as a model for creating your own room, objects, or situations.
So, to create a Collective Graffiti, start by considering the following:
Why would you do it?
It’s graffiti that brings people together around a collective project. It gives people a shared goal, a common cause, or a reason for collective protest.
If you have a group of participants and a common cause, there are two things you need to come up with: a shared slogan that resonates, and a recognizable image.
You need to find a place for graffiti. If you want to make it official, you have to get permission from the local authorities.
What do you need?
- A THEME that you care about.
- Pre-drawn and cut-out STENCILS that include the slogans and visuals that you want to communicate to your audiences.
Remember: we’re not talking here about the stellar project of an artist-hero, but about graffiti that a group of people can do. Come up with a way to include repeated parts in your graffiti, so that the same stencil would be used by a whole group, not just by one unique person.
Don’t forget to get spray cans, masks, and gloves.
- PUBLIC SPACE: whatever is available, but we wish you very good spirits and adrenaline (especially if you’ll be doing illegal graffiti).
- Consider creating a ROOM in the Museum of Care to share your story.
