Back by popular demand – we are hosting our second ‘What Is Home?’ Zine-Making workshop as part of our ongoing Home Made Visible tour.
BIPOC communities are disproportionately underrepresented in all media. How do past images unearthed from personal and institutional archives come to shape new stories? What does this mean for our own familial and collective understanding of history?
The Home Made Visible tour brings a personal lens to Indigenous and visible minority archives through FREE exhibitions, screenings, and workshops in libraries across Canada.
‘What Is Home?’ | Registration Now Open: https://goo.gl/forms/H4dInnnTj9pG7Gmr2
Facilitator: Alejandra Higuera
Number of participants: 10
Date: Tuesday, Feb 19, 2019
Time: 6 – 8pm
Location: Spadina Road Library
In this two 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.
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 get the opportunity to pick up a copy of their zine.
Light refreshments will be available.
Date: Feb 5 – 22, 2019
The Program consists of six short films and a mixed media installation by our commissioned artists. Learn more about the artists at homemadevisible.ca/artists. Visit the library during operating hours for your individual screening experience on designated computers.
