Remember | Resist | Redraw: A Radical History Poster Project

Remember | Resist | RedrawThe Graphic History Collective is excited to launch Remember | Resist | Redraw: A Radical History Poster Project, a collaborative project featuring works by artists and writers committed to promoting art, activism, and alternative history in what is today known as Canada.

Remember | Resist | Redraw posters offer alternative perspectives on well-known historical events, and highlights histories of Indigenous peoples, women, workers, and the oppressed that are often overlooked or marginalized in mainstream historical accounts.

Starting in January 2017, we will publish posters on our website. Like our previous books about working-class history (May Day and Drawn to Change), each poster will be published with an 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. Activist art encourages us to remember, resist, and redraw our world with an eye to changing it for the better.

As a collaborative project, Remember | Resist | Redraw also needs you. In the coming months we will be creating space for new artists, activists, writers, and researchers to get involved and to help shape the direction of the series. In addition, we will be asking our comrades and colleagues – that’s you – for ideas, resources, and support to help grow the project and reach new audiences. So, stay tuned for information about how you can contribute to the project.

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.

  • This is a great site and I really like what you’re doing. I’m currently working on a series of posters about unsung heroes, the folks working to change the world but not getting the attention they deserve. So it’s exciting to see what you’re up to! Please keep me posted on the future of your projects.

  • Fantastic! A space for Indigenous Resurgence amid celebratory colonialism across Kanata. I will not celebrate until change happens and I have seen little if any change to the treatment and conditions of Kanata’s Indigneous population in my lifetime so far. ART and ACTIVISM CAN help to change the world.
