Event description

For many decades, zines (short for magazine or fanzine, reproduced by a photocopier) have been an accessible yet a powerful medium to narrate and circulate stories —they can be easily created with minimal materials and are cheap to produce while being available to many people at the same time. Through this workshop, Philadelphia-based teaching artist, Jino Lee will introduce the basics of zine-making and present how he used zine projects to engage youth to tell stories about their communities. This session will include hands-on zine-making activities where the participants can learn and take away the zines we make during the workshop.
