Help get the word out
If you know a group that would be interested in attending XR events or partnering with us, please hand out event information. The following links lead to downloadable flyers, which are pre-formatted to print four-to-a-page. (sample at right)
To talk with XR about partnering on events and activities, please reach out to ‘contact at xrchicago.org’ .
Paint the Streets
to be on an XR poster.
Just add to this open-access folder and we’ll slot it into our template with XR’s info so we keep a consistent look city-wide. The best work may get shared with XR international! We encourage you to get inspiration from the many art resources on XR international’s website, including XR’s color palette.
Use XR’s starter
Find stencil resources in the XR print at home poster kit. We recommend using a sharp x-acto and old wallpaper or transparent vellum to make stencils (print design and put underneath). Use spray chalk if you want to avoid law-breaking.* More designs here.
Put up stickers!
Get some at our meetings, actions or other events by finding Art Coordinators Jenny or Annie. Or make your own!
Stay tuned for an upcoming screen printing workshop for bigger posters, which can be wheat-pasted or slotted into bus stop advertisements.
When you put up a poster, stencil, sticker or something we haven’t dreamed up yet, share it on social media at @xrchicago and use (and follow!) the hashtags #PaintTheStreets #XRChicago and #ExtinctionRebellion. You can also tag us in an Instagram story and we’ll repost!
Get more involved in organizing for XR.
Let us know your interest in joining the Art Working Group by replying to firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest.
