UCSB Reads Zine Workshop

Tue, 02/04/2020 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm
Instruction & Training 1312

Join the UCSB Library for a free zine workshop, no experience necessary! Zines (pronounced “zeens”) are self-published, DIY collections of photos and text that are printed by hand or photocopied, and independently distributed by the author or ‘zinester.’ You can learn more about zines and how they are made here.

Participants will learn how to make a zine and are welcome to contribute pages to a group zine exploring the themes from the UCSB Reads 2020 book Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore, by Elizabeth Rush. These themes include sea level rise and climate change, and how race, class, national origin and income levels further exacerbate vulnerability to rising seas. Completed group zines will be available to pick up from UCSB Library, Art & Architecture Collection on Monday, February 10.  

Supplies are provided, but you may also want to bring photos or other original items to include in your zine pages. 

Event is in conjunction with UCSB Reads 2020 and is co-sponsored with the UCSB Environmental Justice Alliance and Residential Hall Association.
