Artist Collective


The People’s Library is a Minneapolis, Minnesota based artist collective devoted to ending colonial, institutional, and systemic violence through art and education. They focus on print based workshops utilizing art as a tool for empathy and political critique. The collective is most known for their public workshops that empower members of underrepresented communities through artful means of expression. 

To escape the hierarchical pedagogy of institutions, The People’s Library encourages a grassroots learning environment amongst peers; where meaningful relationships are built through a horizontal leadership style that emphasizes shared responsibility in order to achieve goals.
