Drop in Zine Workshop: A UCSB Reads 2023 Event
Please RSVP here!
Join us at UCSB Library for a free zine workshop, no experience necessary! Participants will learn how to make a zine exploring themes in the UCSB Reads 2023 book “Happy City: Transforming Our Lives Through Urban Design” by Charles Montgomery.
Zines (pronounced “zeens”) are self-published, DIY collections of images and text that are printed by hand or photocopied, and independently distributed by the author or ‘zinester.’ Zines are generally made out of a desire to share information rather than for profit. You can learn more about zines and how they are made here.
- Consider a place in your community or one you have visited that makes you happy. What are the physical characteristics of this place? Is it easy for people who live in the community to visit this place?
- Conversely, consider a place that makes you unhappy. What are the physical characteristics of this place?
- What would you like to see changed in your community/neighborhood/city?
- If you had to create a recipe for a happy city, which ingredients would you put on the recipe list?
