Zine Make-A-ThonMay 26
Join visiting artists and zine-makers Melissa Laverdure and Amanda Stevens for an all-ages Zine Make-A-Thon at the Owens.
Learn about the small but mighty form of the independently published zine and explore the collection of Mount Allison’s Teeny Tiny Zine Library for inspiration.
With just paper, pens, scissors and glue, tell your own stories or collaborate with a friend, then publish your mini-zine on our photocopier. Add a copy of your zine to our Zine Library or trade your zine with friends.
This community art workshop is free and all materials are provided, no registration required. The Zine Make-A-Thon is organized in conjunction with Sackville Bordertown Festival May 22 – 26.
Melissa Laverdure (she/her) is a zine lover and maker living in Fairview, NS. She is a long-term volunteer at the Anchor Archive Zine Library and co-organizer of their annual zine fair. Melissa is a costumer, storyteller, artist, and incessant researcher. She is as curious and comfy as the two cats that let her live with them.
Amanda Stevens is a librarian and zine-maker based in Kjipuktuk (Halifax). She has been making zines since 1994 on topics such as communicating with cats, how to make popcorn on the stove, how to make friends, peeing outside, and online dating. Amanda helps to collectively operate the Anchor Archive Zine Library and co-coordinates the annual Zine Fair. She is passionate about helping people access and share radical and transformative information, resources, and stories.
