Zine-making Across the Diaspora

Art Ed. 162
HANDS-ON WORKSHOP (90 MINUTES) | APPROPRIATE AND ENGAGING FOR ALL AGES | APPROPRIATE FOR ALL LEVELS #AMC2013 #MAKEZINES
Materiality matters! How do people of color come to share our stories in this increasingly connected yet disaffected world? In this workshop, members of MOONROOT and the POC Zine Project will share how zines can be used as a medium to build community and how it can be particularly salient for diasporic communities and communities of color. We will introduce basic zine-making techniques for participants to learn and engage with each other, and walk away with their own zines.

ABOUT ALLIED MEDIA CONFERENCE
The Allied Media Conference is a collaborative laboratory of media-based organizing strategies for transforming our world, held every Summer in Detroit.
At the AMC, we understand media as any way in which we communicate with the world, from zines to breakdancing, to designing neighborhood-based communications infrastructure. We share and create media that exposes, investigates, heals, builds confidence and radical hope, incites dialogue and debate. We demystify technology, not only learning how to use it, but how to design and build our own. In doing so, we redefine technology’s role and impact in our lives. The AMC creates learning environments for all ages and skill levels, including hands-on workshops, strategy sessions, presentations and performances.
The AMC is a network of networks – social justice organizers, community technologists, transformative artists, educators, entrepreneurs, and many others — all using media in innovative ways. Some of these networks sprout from the conference, grow over the course of the year then reconvene in Detroit larger and healthier. Others use the AMC as an annual point of convergence and a space to forge new relationships. Through cycles of participatory investigation and experimentation, our networks continue to grow, generating new theories and practices of media-based organizing.
As our networks grow, so does our capacity to take collective actions to transform our world. At the AMC, we develop new leaders and new forms of leadership, design new methods of problem-solving, cultivate the visions of our communities and build our power to make those visions real.
