March [Monthly Community Meeting] – #RadicalResilience: Art, Coloring, Pizza
March 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+0Free
Milwaukee’s trans+/non-binary community is kicking off our annual national coloring page design contest this weekend at our monthly meeting on Saturday, March 16, 2019. Every year, FORGE sponsors this fun and engaging design contest for April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month (#SAAM).
This year our theme is Radical Resilience.
We encourage artists (of all skill and experience levels!) to join us this Saturday to get a head start on their designs. Not feeling creative to make new art? Then come color some of the designs from previous years (plus others) and eat some pizza, too!
First, second, and third place winners get t-shirts with the winning design, and first and second place winners get $75 and $25 gift cards, respectively. The winning design may also appear on the t-shirts worn by FORGE’s PrideFest volunteers. Winners will be selected on April 1, 2019.
Want to know more about the contest? The guidelines are here.
Let us know you’re attending on the Facebook Event page!
Remember Where to Go
Remember that FORGE is now meeting at IndependenceFirst, 540 S. 1st Street.
Our new location is one result of an emerging partnership with IndependenceFirst.
Plenty of free parking is available, and the new site is on the Green and 15 bus lines.
For the safety and comfort of those with chemical and environmental sensitivities, IndependenceFirst requests that people refrain from using any perfumed grooming products such as scented soaps, deodorants, perfumes, and heavily scented fabric softeners. It is also important that the space remain a smoke-free environment; therefore in addition to not smoking in the building, we ask that you refrain from smoking in paths of travel and doorways.
