Resistance by Design / Design in Dialogue

Chronicling Resistance at “Design in the Archives” Event
October 30, 2019, 6 pm – 8 pm
Free Library of Philadelphia, Parkway Central
1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia

Chronicling Resistance joins more than 20 exhibitors for this ArchivesMonthPhilly centerpiece event, “Design in the Archives,” with an information table and activity station showcasing the importance of design in resistance movements.

The theme for the Chronicling Resistance table is “Resistance by Design” and will feature logos, posters, etc. with implied or explicit messages of resistance from the 19th through 21st centuries.

The theme for the activity is “Design in Dialogue.” The way images and words are positioned on a page sends a message. Chronicling Resistance dug out some historic photos and posters; tell us what they say to you, and show us how you’d design your own resistance poster — no artistic skills required!

The Chronicling Resistance display and activity interpret one of two PACSCL-projects  at “Design in the Archives.” Be sure to stop by the “In Her Own Right” table — also about resistance — and design your own “Votes for Women!” button. And browse the many tables featuring 11 PACSCL member institutions and other area libraries, museums, and archives.
