Big City Forum artists in residence at Pacoima City Hall

Stop by Pacoima City Hall this Saturday 10am-1pm, to join design collective Confetti Confidential in collage and community building at the launch party of Talleres Publicos, organized by 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 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 comprised of CalArts alum Laura Bernstein, Lucy Cook, Ania Diakoff, Kate Johnston and Julie Moon.

Other Talleres Publicos events involving CalArts alumni: Ana Llorente  November 6th, 7th and 8th and a Pop-up Shop with Eline Mul on November 14th.

Pacoima City Hall is located at: 13520 Van Nuys Blvd, Pacoima, CA 91331
