The IPRC is working with Sunday Parkways to make September a month of zine making for all of Portland! Each week will feature a different workshop facilitated by a local artist. We’ll be making a community zine called Portland’s Got Talent with submissions that will be printed and bound at the IPRC.
Zines 101: Monuments We Need
Zines take all kinds of forms. They can be about personal stories, politics, food, travel, anything! In this virtual workshop, Portland zine maker Sarah Mirk will show examples of inspiring zines from around the world. We’ll fold a zine together and each create our own short zine about monuments (like statues and plaques) that we think the city needs. No special writing or drawing skills required, this is an all-ages workshop for novices up for trying something new.
