# May 14-16
The Art of Resistance Political Artists' Conference
The 2004 conference is the first annual gathering of political artists 
from around the country and the world.  The conference will consist of two 
days of workshops, speakers and events exploring political art.  
Conference participants will receive hands-on skills and practical 
knowledge, a broader understanding of the history and current state of 
political art and benefit from the rare opportunity of being able to spend 
a weekend in a building full of political artists from across the country.  
We hope to strengthen the movement of artists for global justice by 
linking together communities of artists whether geographically bound or 
connected by specific issue.
