Zine Workshop with FAM as part of Nuit Blanche Eve
Date and time
The Avenue Room
Avenue E South
Offered in English.
Join FAM for a Zine Workshop as part of Nuit Blanche Eve on Friday September 23rd from 6pm-9am at the Avenue Room! Nuit Blanche Eve is a teaser event to the main festival which takes place the following evening from 7pm-midnight throughout Downtown and Broadway.
Zines are self-published mini magazines. Zines were used as a form of counterculture in the 70’s through the punk scene due to their accessibility and political nature. They can be a form of social justice and advocacy. Today, there are no rules for making a zine; it can be about anything you are interested in. Our zines can look like comics, illustrations, short poems or stories, collages, photography, sketches, how-tos, etc. Throughout the workshop, we will scan copies of zines to share at a later date.
FAM invites you to come learn how to turn a single piece of paper into a self-published piece of art during Nuit Blanche Eve, led by both artist mentors and emerging artists: Jody, Alana, Noah, Charli, Brooklyn, Toni, Jada & Dom.
Future Artistic Minds (FAM) is an affirming space where artists can explore and develop their creative practice, and exists to provide accessible, anti-oppressive art studios for youth. Having access to mentorship, equipment and space to grow and learn has helped FAM artists to explore their identity, build their skills and uncover new career paths related to art. FAM engages artist mentors throughout the program who provide youth with technical skills and professional perspectives from their fields.
