Design Action Collective is celebrating 10 years of visual communications for social justice with an exhibition at SoleSpace, 1714 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland. The show will open on First Friday, March 1 and remain through the month.
Design Action is a mission-driven worker-owned cooperative serving the movement for social change. Design Action spun out of Inkworks Press, a long-time movement print shop in Berkeley. Design Action has worked with hundreds of grassroots community organizations, labor unions, political campaigns, national policy organizations, sustainable businesses, movement artists and international NGOs.
This exhibit shares a small portion of the work done for these organizations over the years. The posters and other printed and web pieces on exhibit were designed to educate, inspire and move people to action around struggles that can be in some cases matters of life and death for those involved. These struggles continue and the work continues.
Design Action Collective is a worker-owned cooperative of 11 members based in downtown Oakland. The worker-owners come from all over the world and are progressive activists who bring their skills to advancing the movement for social change. Design Action worker-owners are unionized with Communication Workers of America, Pacific Media Guild, and are members of the Network of Bay Area Worker Cooperatives and the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives.
