Liz Chalfin will speak at the “A Green Dream?” symposium in March 2019 in Kanazawa, Japan. Her talk “Innovation in Community: the Zea Mays Printmaking model.” will take place on Friday March 8, 2019 in the lecture room of the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa.

In images and words, founding director Liz Chalfin will describe the evolution of Zea Mays Printmaking as a model of a community based printmaking studio with a non-toxic mission and an international reach. She will discuss the challenges of creating and growing a community studio as well as the incredible opportunities that arise in the process. Her talk will emphasize the research program that is at the heart of Zea Mays Printmaking’s mission. Post-graduate student interns conduct primary research into safer products and practices, document their findings and share them online through the Zea Mays Printmaking website. Chalfin will share highlights from the research program, including a product that has gone to market and others that have been adopted worldwide.
