Zines + Chapbooks: Shaping Content for/as Communities of Color

with Savannah Bustillo
Tuesdays: May 31, June 7, 14, 21, 28; 7–9pm CT

In community with other artists of color, explore chapbooks and zines as book structures and vehicles for sharing stories. Each week, learn a new book structure and techniques for adding content that works with the book form to create meaning. Examples of these structures by contemporary artists of color will be shared and discussed. The group will also engage in friendly critique and exercises that support content generation. Participants will have the option to exchange books with one another to begin or grow a personal collection of artists’ books. All community members who identify as a person of color are welcome. All skill levels are encouraged to participate, share, and inspire a diversity of ideas.

All skill levels welcome
Certificate: 10 hours, Category A, B, or C
