Event description
A Live Local Storytelling Event

About this Event

What's "Your" Atlanta? Old Atlanta? New Atlanta? Hip-Hop Atlanta? Pre-Olympics Atlanta?

As the landscape and population of Metropolitan Atlanta continues to shift in the midst of dynamic change, how do all of these different narratives of “Atlanta” coexist as old legacies give way to new generations? Pop-Up Zine Atlanta will give you a taste of some of those stories, live from the stage!

Pop-Up Zine is a night of live, multimedia storytelling featuring local stories that span film, photography, music, radio and Q&A from a range of Atlanta-based contributors. Inspired by the critically-acclaimed national touring show Pop-Up Magazine, Zine is independently produced by volunteers and intended for a hyper-local, intimate audience.

Pop-Up Zine offers an opportunity for a “live magazine” experience unique to our community. This Atlanta version of Pop-Up Zine will highlight “My Atlanta” perspectives from contributors that help us see the past, present and future of the city through shared history and intimate stories.

Location: Windmill Arts Center; Free Parking, 2 blocks from East Point MARTA Station. Music provided by DJ Lillie Smalls.
