Julistus (Manifesto) is a workshop where participants plan, print and distribute posters in the city. The workshop is partly inspired by political history, for instance the political posters that were quickly and cheaply produced at the time of the student revolt in France.
For Pixelache Festival Julistus workshop will explore the festival theme of local and decentralised governance and will be using several manifestos by the festival Assembly that Pixelache is hosting. The chosen sentences or fragments will be visualised as posters and placed together in and around the festival site in Suvilahti resulting in a big, collective temporary work.
The Manifesto workshop has been held before in IHME Festival in Helsinki, in Berlin and Tallinn. The concept and facilitation is a collaboration of Päivi Raivio and Robin Ellis.
