Maritime Flags are hung on boats to alert and share information from ship to ship. These flags often designate where the ship is from, whether or not it’s friendly, and can even communicate its cargo. Our workshop poses the question, wouldn’t it be useful to communicate, from afar, a clear identity or state if you so choose? Maybe a flag will be the introduction most important to you or maybe it will draw attention from a stereotype.
People of all ages are welcome to join AGCC Studio Artist June Edmonds to invent their own symbols and create flags inspired by International Maritime Flags in this series of 3 free workshops. Flags created will be installed in our gallery as part of our Bridging San Pedro gallery exhibition in January 2020.
All materials will be provided.

Bridging San Pedro: Visual Literacy as Community Practice is focused on the development of visual literacy in San Pedro community members through hands on making and deep listening exercises. Four artists with singular, but intersecting, art projects will work at Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC) to foster a greater awareness and association between the Port of Los Angeles, life in San Pedro and art as a daily lived experience. Each artist will lead free workshops during which members of the community will create elements that will be used to compose the final art piece. These projects will culminate in an exhibition, curated by jill moniz, in the AGCC galleries during the first quarter of 2020.
