Saturday, December 10th, 2022: 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. Zines (short for “fanzines” or “magazines”) are typically self-published booklets
featuring artwork and/or text. Often made using widely available materials and
methods, zines are an accessible way to create, collect, and distribute art. Though
they can be about pretty much any topic, zines have a history of being a part of
social and political activism, giving marginalized groups a voice and a space for self-
expression. In this workshop, Yuji invites participants to draw inspiration from
social issues as they create their own zines.
Materials are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring additional supplies
if desired (photos, ephemera, favourite art materials, etc).
