WAHC celebrates Labour Day this year with a take-home banner making kit that makes all work visible and celebrates essential workers!
Designed by visual artist and graphic designer Tariq Sami, the kit includes all materials needed to collage, decorate and colour your banner, and some information on essential workers in long term care, retail and migrant farm work. Kits are kid-friendly but fun and appropriate for everyone.
Kits are still available for pick up during WAHC’s open hours (Weds-Fri 10 am – 4 pm and Sat 12 – 4 pm) while quantities last.
And click here to see our Program and Exhibitions Specialist Sonali Menezes’ banner making demo video on our Facebook page!
