Creativity on Fire: Making Zines

Pre-registration required: register here

Part of the Collective Protest and Rebellion: A Black Study Intensive series

Zines are historically self-published, inexpensive publications that are rooted in self-expression, art, community, and making knowledge accessible. One of the earliest modern literary zines (Fire!!) was created during the Harlem Renaissance and featured writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston.

They can be seen today being passed out as protests, teach-ins, and libraries, sharing LGBT+ and Black stories through writing, photography, art, political education, and more. 

There are really no rules to creating a zine, but there are useful tips and tricks. Learn how to make one yourself, and then have your creation archived in the Frick Fine Arts Library's zine collection!

The Center for Creativity is proud to host this workshop in collaboration with The Center for African American Poetry and Poetics’ (CAAPP) week-long Black Study Intensive, “Collective Protest and Rebellion."

Required materials: paper of any size, drawing equipment (markers/colored pencils, pen and/or pencil), scissors

Optional: images/word clippings for collage (from magazines or printed from the internet), glue stick, more paper scraps

Facilitated by Kami Beckford, Center for Creativity Student Ambassador
