Workshop | Posters for the street with Pris Roos

Exhibit on the street

What do you stand for? What are you against? In Our Colonial Inheritance you can see that creative resistance helps. You can make an impact too! Book a ticket and participate in the artist workshop with Pris Roos for inspiration. 

Sunday 14 August and Wednesday 17 August Time: 2 pm - 4 pm

What should be shown in public spaces? 

Many companies and organizations spread their message by exhibiting on the street. But is this what people on the street want to look at? Artist Pris Roos really wants to see more of the people and the street itself. In her workshop you think about how to change Tropenmuseum posters, so that they are more about the real people you come across on the street. What or whom would you like to see and what do you want to say about them? Pris tells how she herself goes about her work and gives you a free hand. With all kinds of materials you make new, street-worthy posters for the museum. The museum will learn a lot from this workshop too!
