DIY sessions: “Emergency preparedness”

Please join us for an entertaining yet educational workshop that revisits old methods while brainstorming tongue-in-cheek parallels to combat the unknown of a natural disaster of your choice (there are so many possible options!). Veteran artist Warren Quigley, whose “Survival Store” installation has previously appeared in Toronto and Buffalo, will go through highlights from his book The Official Comprehensive Inclusive Strategic Instructive Survival Guide for Artists in Buffalo during the Apocalypse. And if you’re not an artist, wouldn’t you want to know too?

“Resistance is a marathon”—DIY sessions, presented by Tina Dillman and El Museo, is a monthly series of artist-centered workshops inspired by the actions taken by artists in other cities during the first 100 days of the new presidential administration. These workshops are free and open to the public.
