As of last weekend, I’m an executive producer! For the past two weekends, I’ve worked with Trish Tolentino and Jess of Stories Not Forgotten and Rebekah Henderson of Tan Tigress to film a series of videos that will become part of an exciting zine-making curriculum project I’m working on called From A to Zine. This IMAGINE 2020 Fund grant-winning project will bring zine making into 4th-8th grade classrooms as a way to celebrate and amplify student voices.
Zines are a great way to support students in finding their own voice, exploring art-making and even discovering entrepreneurship. Students will get to learn from local zine makers through a series of online videos and then share the zines they create during the month of May at pop-up zine reading rooms around the city!
