Political Zines, Voting & Empowerment /Flag Books
Thursday, October 8, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Sarita Garcia and Mel Cook
In the midst of the current election cycle, artists and activists are finding creative ways to share the importance of voting with their communities. Bringing the energy from our previous workshop, Activist Zines, in this session we will introduce Artists Books as a way to communicate and share the importance of exercising your voice. Artists books have been transformed and reimagined as a means for sharing knowledge and information in different and unusual forms. Participants will look at a variety of artists, educators, organizers and creative agents of change in their methods of producing an Artist Book. In addition, we'll learn the technique of creating a Flag Book using a simple accordion fold and begin our own book of voting and empowerment.
