RED SHOES Radical Poster Archive – Educating Agitating Organising
RED SHOES Radical Poster Archive is a not for profit artist-led project
based in South Wales run by Shaun Featherstone. The archive consists of
over 200 radical posters from British and international campaigns and
movements concerned with civil and human rights, equality, industrial
disputes, poverty, international solidarity, climate justice and peace.
Invitations are now open for exhibition enquiries especially from
community and grassroots venues, organisations and festivals. Poster
donations from groups and individuals are currently being accepted.
Shaun Featherstone lives in Cardiff, Wales, UK. His work is rooted in collaboration and social engagement and has become increasingly politicized in recent years. A common thread is the extent to which he is willing to hand over large portions of his projects to be manipulated and used by others – creating situations which invite or even demand collaboration. Described unapologetically as “platforms for provocation, dissent and activism” his work includes publications, street installation, meetings and events.
