Banner making parties can be a fun way to engage with others who care about the issue in your community.

Banner Making Party Tips

1. Host the event at an accessible space where you can  have plenty of room to paint! You can also make it a potluck or ask folks to bring snacks!

2. Outreach: Plan the event with enough time in advance to advertise. Create a Facebook event, print & handout flyers, call/text your friends, post in community calendars, be creative.

3. Used sheets from thrift-stores make great sized banners & it’s recycling too! (Don’t forget to use a drop-cloth – sheets are thin and paint bleeds through)

4. Be creative! A big part of the fun is group brainstorming messages to put on the banner. Keep in mind, short messages work best for folks to read if they are just glancing or passing by. Some ideas: Clean Up the Mines!, Abandoned Uranium Mines = Toxic Communities, etc. You can also get fancy and use a video projector to trace your designs. .

5. Acrylic craft paint works great. Reach out to local artists to participate, it’s a great way to build community too!

6. Deploy your awesome work! Fix banners to poles and fly them at your events! Be creative, have fun, and get the message out there!
