Zine-making in the wild
Workshop with Marly Pierre-Louis
The Wild is a series of pop-up bookstores and art experiences inspired by the tradition and history of black fugitives, maroons, refugees and exiles. The Wild is a meeting ground for Black togetherness that seeks to cultivate an intimate and liberated space for Black people through the curation of books and events.
In this two-part edition of zine-making in the wild, we will tend to diaspora and migrations and explore ways to answer the question “where are you from” in ways outside colonial logics of borders and nation-states.
What are the spaces that made you?
Each participant will create their own zine. Zines will then be compiled into one big zine that everyone will get to take home. You’re encouraged to bring personal effects from home (i.e. magazines, images, photos, etc.) however materials will be provided.
The Wild zine workshop is an intentional space for Black and POC folks to come together, conjure up and materialize our dreamscapes and wild imaginations. Preference will be given to queer and femme Black and POC individuals. Space is limited to 12 participants. The participants will get a notification on the 15th of June.
Day 1 – Sunday 26 June, 12h-16h: Creation and production of collages
Day 2 – Saturday 2 July, 12h-16h: Riso printing and folding
Lunch will be provided.
