Storytelling with Zines

Zines are powerful storytelling vehicles — for large, public audiences and more intimate circles of friends and families. This hands-on activity will introduce zine-making as an easy way for people to document (and share) their experiences, observations, and ideas, with a particular eye toward stories about nature connection and climate optimism. Zine-and-art beginners are absolutely welcome and encouraged to join! Led by artists Arya Natarajan and Amy Wu.

Crowd-Sourced Art Installation

The ‘10 Knots’ project champions the cross-disciplinary strength of art and science to address locally-rooted contemporary ecological and environmental concerns through community engagement in a public art project. Participants will learn basic hand-mending skills as they contribute stitches towards this reclaimed-textile-based installation. Workshop led by local artist Eliot Spaulding.
