We will offer several days on virtual content around the theme of community. The fields of book and print have a long tradition of being community-based arts. From apprenticeship models in teaching to community-shared equipment and spaces, we rely on our fellow artists to preserve our crafts through teaching and mentoring. The past few years have brought about challenges to this model. We have had to physically isolate ourselves from each other, relying on virtual communication; we have had limited access to shared spaces, hacking our processes to adapt to at-home studios; and we have had to reckon with familiar models of education that are exclusive and reinforce racism and elitism. How have we risen to these challenges? How have we relied on our community? And what is our vision for the future of our community?
