logo no-logo anti-logo workshop no. 1 at oppenheimer park

 this "socially responsible graffiti" has been added to a number of buildings on cordova street, and will continue to be added during the coming weeks.  why this label, you may well ask.  well this busyness looking/dressed man asked what i was doing, and that was my reply.  "socially responsible graffiti, sir, it's in chalk".  "good for you" he said and went his merry way.
the following pics are the first in a series of 3 textile workshops where those who identify themselves as downtown eastsiders design and make a logo that represents for each what the dtes means to them.  does that make sense?
