Creating Cartonera

This is a past event.

Registration required: register here 

Make your own cartonera with PanteraCartonera@Pitt and the Center for Creativity at this hands-on workshop. 

The Cartonera publishing trend began in Buenos Aires in 2003, and was organized by writers and artists who produced hand-made books at low-cost using recycled cardboard (thus the name "cartonera"). The books are produced in a collective-circular way, in which authors become designers, designers become creators, and creators become authors. 

The phenomenon has expanded across the Americas, Europe, and Africa. Many have “recycled” the model, adapting it to their local contexts, communities, and social needs. 

Basic materials will be provided. If you have items that you would like to use that have a personal meaning to you, please bring them. Refreshments will be provided!

For more information, email: lavst12@pitt.edu 

PanteraCartonera@Pitt is a joint initiative between the Center for Latin American Studies and the University Library System.

Monday, September 19 at 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
