Libre Graphics for unionising

This is our first demo session focusing on posters for unionising. We will look at Artists’ Union England, UVW-DCW and MayDay Rooms archive for inspiration. This theme will inform our exploration of Gimp and Inkscape and how to prepare material for risograph and digital print.

This session is an introduction for people who are new to image editing tools, or who want to go from commercial programs to free and open source graphic programs (known as ‘Libre Graphics’).

There are a range of Libre Graphics programs available. We’ll be focussing on two popular tools for this session: Inkscape and GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program). They are a great pairing for making flyers, posters and web graphics. We’ll explain the differences between them, and show you how to get the most out of using them together.

Inkscape and GIMP are both available for Windows, Mac and Linux. To get the most out of the session, please take a moment to download and install them in advance:
