Hermanas de la Trensa by Laura Ortiz-SpiegelWe've already received some great submissions and are looking forward to yours! Please visit the Artists page where you will find instructions on how to submit artwork. You may also download the instructions in PDF format here. If an extension to this deadline is needed you must contact Carmina Eliason at (831) 536-4436 by Friday, May 16th.

Looking for Volunteers, Materials, and Stories

People are bringing forward some really great materials for the exhibit and the website, but we are always in need of more so we can ensure that as many voices as possible are able to participate. If you have artwork or photographs you would like to share, please get in touch. We would also love for some volunteers to sit down and tell us their stories, especially strike participants. Finally, we're looking for some translators to help get materials for the website written in Spanish. Our goal is for this to be a truly bilingual space, but we need some help getting it there! 

More Updates Coming

I'm working with a great organization, the Labor Archives & Research Center at San Francisco State University, and they have made available a vast amount of resources from their archives, including artwork created during the strike, news articles, and photographs. These mainly come from the Frank Bardake collection, which Mr. Bardake donated to LARC. These will all be added to the website soon, and we'll send out another announcement when they are available. However, if you are looking for images as inspiration, please let me know and we can make them available sooner.

Thanks for all of the support and please, feel free to email or call if you have questions. Let's continue the conversation!
