Squeaky Wheel invites youth ages 7-12 to participate in A CHILDREN’S BOOK with LIZN’BOW! In this new media youth workshop, the artists and youth will collaborate on a book that expands on ideas of identity, representation, power, and possibility. Participating young creatives will create drawings, portraits, and texts, exploring identity, gender, and feminism. The workshop will conclude with youth participating in a green screen recording/portrait session that will be remixed into the book.

Contact ekrem@squeaky.org with any questions.

This workshop is led by LIZN’BOW (Miami, FL), Squeaky Wheel’s Spring 2019 Workspace Residents. LIZN’BOW is a project in which Liz Ferrer and Bow Tie use media technology, digital tools, and community building exercises as vehicles to visualize, play, and explore different social and creative possibilities. The artists start most of their pieces in a workshop setting. Our workshops focus on providing space for people to form nuanced and expanded ideas of identity, representation, power, and possibility. They usually choose a mainstream cultural format as starting point then deconstruct and experiment from there. LIZN’BOW have worked with The Bass Museum, Institute of Contemporary Art Miami, Breakthrough Miami, Hands to Help, La Sierra Artist Residency Columbia, Tempest Projects, Cunsthaus, Miami Lighthouse for the Blind, En Residencia at the Koubek Center, Borscht Film Festival, and Mana Contemporary Miami.

Squeaky Wheel’s Workspace Residency is supported by generous support by the County of Erie and County Executive Mark Poloncarz, the National Endowment for the Arts , New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, individual members, businesses, and supporters.
