Join us for a zine making workshop on survivorship, healing, and reclamation of self. We’ll discuss the history of zines, different types of zines, dominant narratives, and why telling your story is not only revolutionary but an important aspect of social justice work. There will be a brainstorming session followed by ample time to make your zine page(s) for a collaborative zine
Located in Cook Library, 507, The Towson Room
This program is part of Towson University’s presentation of the “What Were You Wearing?” Survivor Art Installation, which originated at the University of Arkansas in 2013 inspired by inspired by Dr. Mary Simmerling’s poem, What I Was Wearing. This exhibit combines contemporary survivor stories with historic survivor stories researched from the Baltimore Sun, dating back as far as 1852. The TU Theatre Arts Department’s historic clothing collection adds a historical component to the exhibit to further emphasize how deeply these attitudes are woven into the fabric of our history and culture.
