The 'Zine Making PLAYshop begins with a youth-oriented tour of the exhibition View from the Edge of the World led by AGR Curator Sandee Moore. Participants will share their insights and experiences prompted by the various ways artists in the exhibition depict the landscape, encouraging an understanding of the land as more than a commodity to be bought, sold and mined, but a living entity intimately connected to our experiences of this place.
Artists Vera Saltzman and Sue Bland will help youth define their responses to the exhibition, which will be the subject of their 'zines (hand-made, photocopied magazines).
Participants will pose for Saltzman, who is celebrated for her sensitive photo portraits. Working with cartridge paper prints of photographs of themselves, participants will then learn how to make a 'zine, including cutting, folding and making covers. Using a range of readily available materials (cartridge paper, pens, photocopies, gluesticks), participants will acquire a skill that they can apply beyond the exhibition and PLAYshop.
Completed 'zines may be deposited at the gallery to share with other visitors, or participants may take their creations home.
This event is presented in partnership with Nature Saskatchewan and Nature Regina's Get Outside Kids Club.

Engaging audiences includes attracting, involving, inspiring and creating community, and a sense of identity and place, through:
free admission to all exhibitions;
affordably-priced and accessible public workshops;
free artist talks and opportunities to connect with professional artists; and
thought-provoking and accessible didactic materials.
