To Make a Public: Good Weather
On December 12th, we gathered at Good Weather in North Little Rock for a public conversation around the launch of To Make a Public to ask: What does it mean to make a public? How do publications work within and alongside social movements? How are artists defining, building and protecting the public sphere?
Moderated by Good Weather founder (and To Make a Public designer) Haynes Riley, the discussion included local artists Layet Johnson and Omaya Jones (Deshaun), and Tara Stickley, Editor-in-Chief of The Forgetory, to highlight Little Rock’s rich history of zine-making (particularly rooted in the 90s punk scene) and local native Nate Powell’s recent National Book Award for his graphic novel MARCH with Congressman John Lewis.
