In this three hour workshop participants will explore the meaning of home through free writing exercises and games. Participants are asked to bring an object that, to them, represents home.
We will then create a zine with scanned photos of the objects and also tell a story about what the object and how it connects to our meaning of home. The idea is to guide participants on not only telling their own stories but also making a piece, in this case a zine. The zine will be used at homes as a conversation started and also a way to tell stories. We highlight the importance of telling our own stories and making content outside the digital realm and creating our own archival material.
This is a hands-on workshop and every participant will come out with a zine that they can take home.
This workshop is a part of Home Made Visible, a project that digitizes old home movies for Indigenous people and people of colour. Check us out at HomeMadeVisible.ca
