Gentrification works by making long standing communities invisible. Today, Boyle Heights and other barrios in LA have refused to be silenced. Folks have refused to stay silent and instead make their resistance visible—on and off the streets.
In our first workshop of the #VisibleResistance series, we spend time with Dewey Tafoya of Social Machine Productions and DichosSinVichos. Both share their stories in making their resistance seen through image making and interventions. Dewey also demonstrates how to use silkscreening to make anti-displacement stickers. These tools help us create our own geographical interventions to let the stories of our displacement become visible.
