Celebrate People's History with Jana Sanskriti!

It's finally here: The Celebrate People's History Poster about Jana Sanskriti, India's Theatre of the Oppressed movement. Founded in the villages of West Bengal in 1985, Jana Sanskriti combines aspects of Indian folk theatre with Augusto Boal's methods (particularly Forum Theatre), empowering people to change their society. To date, Jana Sanskriti's work has reached an estimated 3 million people.

This 11" × 17" 2-color offset poster, reproduced from a linoleum cut by Morgan Andrews, is just one in a series of more than 100 posters by 80 different artists. All of these posters are available online (cheap!) from the Just Seeds Artists Cooperative. They have also been compiled in Celebrate People's History: The Poster Book of Resistance and Revolution (The Feminist Press, 2010).

For posters and books, please visit the Just Seeds website. You can also obtain them directly from Philadelphia Theatre of the Oppressed by calling 215-730-0982.
