Culture Days: Zine Making
Together, the Campbell River Art Gallery and the Tidemark Theatre invite you to join us at the Gallery for zine making to celebrate CULTURE DAYS on Saturday September 26th!
Culture Days is a nation-wide celebration that raises awareness, and encourages accessibility and participation of Canadians in the arts and cultural life their communities (since 2009). This year, once again, thousands of artists, cultural workers, organizations and volunteers are mobilizing to host free participatory public events in hundreds of cities and town across the county on the last weekend of September.
A Zine (or, Xine) is a self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images commonly reproduced via photocopier – a magazine with a twist informed by a DIY ethos. Topics frequently covered are broad, including fan fiction, politics, poetry, art and design, social theory, riot grrrl feminism or other content outside of the mainstream.
At this special Culture Days event, each participant will create a page for the gallery’s zine publication titled “XX EX”, inspired by the current exhibition.
THIS IS AN ALL AGES EVENT, NO ART SKILLS REQUIRED!
NO ART EXPERIENCE NECESSARY + EVERYONE WELCOME.
Free admission or by donation.
All materials will be provided by the Art Gallery.
