OCCUPRINT PORTFOLIO

There is one pre-publication set and about 40 standard print portfolios available. Please email Felice Tebbe to reserve a copy.

Please support this educational fund-raising project. It is crucial that we keep the Occupy movement alive; unless we address the fiscal inequities of the society we live in there is no hope for a sustainable future.

“Occuprint emerged when The Occupied Wall Street Journal asked us to guest curate an issue dedicated to the poster art of the global Occupy movement. The Occuprint website is meant to connect people with this work, and provide a base of support for print-related media within the #Occupy movement. http://occuprint.org/

Occuprint showcases posters from the worldwide Occupy movement, all of which are part of the creative commons, and available to be downloaded for noncommercial use, though we ask that artists be given attribution for their work.

Our Print Lab is collaboration with the Occupy Wall Street Screen Printing Guild. The OWS Screen Printing Guild is an official working group within the OWS General Assembly. It is an open working group that regularly incorporates new members into its process and can be contacted at owsscreenguild at gmail dot com.)

We look forward to creating and distributing more printed matter by supporting the development of screen-printing labs at other locations worldwide, and by printing more of the wonderful posters that we are receiving.”
—Occuprint.
