    ME & EU Workshop

Bored of Borders Workshop by ME & EU

Workshop |

Saturday, 13 July

Arcade East, Mare Street


A graphic workshop hosted by Just Friends. Designers Nathan and Sam T Smith (no relation) initiated ME & EU in 2016, a collection of postcards written and designed by UK-based creatives that were sent across Europe as a means to reconnect the UK with the EU in the wake of Brexit.

During this time the project was heading for its second iteration, acknowledging the sense of division and disconnect the years following the referendum brought as people evaluated their response and as voters of both ‘remain’ and ‘leave’ imagined the possibilities of a post-EU Britain. The workshop was intended to be one such response, where participants were encouraged to use postcards as a tool to communicate with others on a personal level in order to side step the usual political means or norms of doing so.
