Remember | Resist | Redraw
A Radical History Poster Project

The Graphic History Collective has launched a new activist art project: Remember | Resist | Redraw: a Radical History Poster Project.

The Graphic History Collective is collaborating with a number of artists and writers to create an ongoing poster series that will offer alternative perspectives on well-known historical events, and will highlight the histories of Indigenous peoples, women, workers, and other oppressed people who are often overlooked or marginalized in mainstream historical accounts.

Starting January 2017, we are publishing posters for free on our website. Like our previous books about working-class history (May Day and Drawn to Change), each poster will be published with a formal essay by an artist or activist for context.

We want to share these posters widely. We are also planning to organize exhibits and a traveling pop-up people’s history installation. Stay tuned for more information.

In order to change the world, we need to be able to imagine alternative ways of living and organizing to bring about social change. We combine art and history because it helps us fuel our radical imaginations and dream of what might be.

We hope you will join us on our journey to use activist art to remember, resist and redraw our world with an eye to changing it for the better.

Last Friday, Lianne Charlie and the GHC’s Sean Carleton were interviewed on CBC North.
