Express yourself at our printing party.

Expect music, making & dancing from one69A and friends.  All the good stuff.

Building up on the theme of disruption, we’re rallying the troops and asking YOU to join US make a statement. DM18 has partnered with with Berlin-based artist Patrick Thomas + other friends to create iconic stencils/slogans for you to use, to create your own protest and find your voice whatever your cause.

In the age of dis-information, fake-news and social media the medium, our weekender is inspired by Patrick Thomas’s book ‘The Protest Stencil Toolkit’. The book contained numerous stencils die-cut and ready for use, giving the user no-matter how creative they were the tools to make their own messages.
