In this workshop, Alyssa Pisciotto will go over the how-tos of zine-making, followed by guided time for participants to create a zine that explores lived experiences, truths, & stories of being queer. This program is delivered through Zoom. Fine Zines: A Queer Zine Workshop will go over the how-tos of zine-making, including basic binding techniques, followed by guided time for participants to create a tangible zine that explores lived experiences, truths, and stories of being queer, however that may look for them. Participants are welcome to submit their zine to the Fine Zines archive, which will be available in both a physical space and as a digital archive, free and open to all. Founded by Alyssa Pisciotto, Fine Zines: A Queer Zine Archive is a zine archive that focuses on queer experiences and voices. Queer narratives are often erased or overlooked throughout history, so preserving these stories and truths preserved in the ways the authors and creators intend is very important. Through the format of the zine, channels of accessibility are opened up, as zines are traditionally low-budget, self-published, and made with anything the maker wants to use. About the Artist: Alyssa Pisciotto is a queer artist from LaSalle, Ontario, and now resides in Toronto. She graduated from OCAD University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Drawing and Painting and minoring in Printmaking. Painting and printmaking are her primary practice. Her current work revolves around themes of colour, line, and shape, and how they interact with one another. Alyssa has shown in galleries across Canada and the United States and has been a part of a year-long special exhibition at TheMuseum in Kitchener, Ontario. Alyssa is currently working with The Art Gallery of Windsor to create and deliver arts programming with their Art With Heart workshop series. Image courtesy of Alyssa Pisciotto.
