Diseño en Resistencia: Reimagine Puerto Rico|Political Poster/Zine Workshop
If you’re not an activist physically out there, you can still have your voice heard. Design your own political zine about the past, present, and future of Puerto Rico, at our upcoming workshop led by educator and zinister Nicole Acosta-Nemergut.
Zines are as powerful as any other form of art and design. Usually associated with the punk, feminist, queer movements, among others, these self-published cut and paste booklets have served as a platform to practice resistance and address issues ignored by the mainstream media.
Join zinister Nicole Acosta-Nemergut to learn more about the history of zine-making as she guides you through creating your very own zine. It is strongly suggested to bring any writing you’ve already done, old magazines you have at home, and any other fun art supplies you might want to incorporate.
When: March 29, 6pm-8pm
Where: Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), 120 E. 125th Street, New York, New York 10035
Admission: $10 (Includes Materials) Purchase Here
