Event Description

On December 15 from 12-4 pm, Blake Street Studios and Catherine J Howard invite you to celebrate the launch of the 13/13/13 Sketchbook Project with food, music, wine, and lots and lots of hugs! Learn more about the project, meet other fascinating creative thinkers, and perhaps even pre-order a few of the sketchbooks that will be released throughout 2013. Kids welcome!

About the 13/13/13 Sketchbook Project:
During the 13/13/13 Sketchbook Project, Catherine J Howard will live with 13 collectives of artists that use visual art to challenge and revitalize their communities -- from Tampere, Finland where artists band together to weather a harsh physical and economic environment to Karachi, Pakistan where artists are working under-the-radar to promote critical thinking about the implications of combining religion and materialism to Asuncion, Paraguay where street artists are invigorating shanty towns with color and pride. To document and disperse these experiences, she will publish sketchbooks with writing, drawings, collage, and Polaroids in each location, as well as update the project blog daily with interviews, photographs, and anecdotes. After the project is completed, she will distill the lessons learned throughout 2013 into an educational curriculum that will be available to art educators and social activists all over the world to continue the discussions started by the 13/13/13 Sketchbook Project.
