“XYZines is a 3-tiered program for educators and youth (13-29) who identify or ally with LGBTQ+, Deaf, Mad, and disabled, and BIPOC communities. With this, XYZines aims to bring issues identified by these discriminated-against communities forward, and encourage advocacy against systemic barriers and oppression. XYZines will feature a series of workshops and events focusing on hands-on creative skills, story-telling tools, and digital skills building workshops, culminating into a youth-led exhibition and Zine Fair at Cedarbrae Library in December 2018.”
Stewing Stories invites participants to satay, boil, and ferment their food stories and experiences with other participants to examine how food is nourishment, sustenance, and commemorative. Breaking down food myths and recalling food traditions, participants will create food/related stickers and contribute to the communal collage.
