Bogotá, Colombia

Added on by m.k.s.

m.k.s partnered with Fundación Colombia Nuevos Horizontes to bring an experimental printmaking workshop to displaced individuals in Colombia. Colombia has the largest internally displaced population--larger than Afghanistan, Iraq, or any African nation--a fact that is not particularly well-known to the American public. The inter-generational workshop explored collagraph techniques (a type of relief printmaking) using economical materials and printing without a press: masking tape + floor + colored pencils + paper. Workshop participants ranged in age from three to over 40. Each artist focused on drawing something that was personally meaningful using the modified collagraph technique.
