The Llano Del Rio's Guide to Power in Los Angeles brings in one of our favorite Los Angeles artists: Rosten Woo. As usual, a very high level of design skills and thought are packed into this double-sided poster. From the Llano Del Rio Collective:
The Power Points guide offers its users a group of exercise helping them visualize their evolving relationships within partisan, issues based, strategic campaigns. For this guide Artist Rosten Woo transcribed the Power Analysis tool developed by the South Los Angeles based community organization SCOPE (Strategic Concepts in Organizing and Policy Education) as a commission for the Llano Del Rio Collective. The guide asks its user to name and frame a cause they are committed to, and then provides them with activities to help map strategic relationships, allies and antagonists. Additionally in Power Points, Woo discusses the historic development of power analysis mapping from Saul Alinsky to SCOPE founder Anthony Thigpenn. The Power Points guide is best experienced as an active process, by working through the exercises Woo provides inside. Power Points will be helpful to anyone considering embarking on a political campaign or immersed in one.
