Presented Saturday, October 10, 12:30 PM

Edie Fake created Affordable Housing for Trans Elders, his large, architecturally inspired mural on BAMPFA’s Art Wall, in response to a personal friend’s difficult search for a place to live. It is the artist’s hopeful and joyful vision for an individual and a community in need of housing. Using papers of many colors along with other materials, design a highly patterned façade and transform an ordinary box into a visionary model of housing for a person or group of people you imagine needing it most. Workshop led by Raphael Noz.


Please gather these materials before the session:

  • A box. It can be anything from shoebox-sized to something twice that size, maybe from something recently delivered.
  • Construction paper in assorted colors, or other colored paper
  • Scissors
  • A glue stick, or simple liquid glue (like Elmer’s)
  • A pencil
  • A black crayon or pastel stick or marker

Also useful, but not required:

  • A ruler
  • A box cutter or utility knife, but only if an adult will use it for you
