Big City Forum: Talleres Publicos

Big City Forum: Talleres Publicos will bring together the creative forces of numerous participants across the fields of architecture, graphic and urban design, art, and social and community activism. Talleres Publicos will occupy the community center site at the Pacoima City Hall to engage the community of Pacoima and the Northeast San Fernando Valley through workshops, convenings, and hands-on making projects in order to produce various forms of creative material based on personal and collective actions that begin to redefine public engagement.

The launch for Talleres Publicos will take place on Saturday, Oct. 3rd and will include a hands-on workshop by the collective Confetti Confidential. This event will be open to the public from ages 5 to 95 to celebrate the vibrancy of Pacoima and the launch of this engaging project.

Saturday, October 3rd from 10am-1pm (Launch Party)
Open Collage with Confetti Confidential

The community is invited to come together and create freestyle collage in celebration of the launch of Talleros Publicos. Collage is a technique of composing a work of art by combining various materials not normally associated with one another on a single surface. It is an easy and fun form of expression available to anyone who is willing to try!

Confetti Confidential is Laura Bernstein, Lucy Cook, Ania Diakoff, Kate Johnston and Julie Moon.
