ACTIVIST ART
Fight the power with a zine, print, or chapbook!

A zine is a one-page book of text and images that promotes self-expression and creativity. Zines are cost-effective, fun to make, and a great way to share your passions with others. A chapbook is a short booklet, suitable for longer texts or a collection of stories, poems, or micro-essays. Prints can be made from wood blocks or linoleum. Bring your ideas and we'll figure out the best medium. 


February 4, 10 am - 5 pm • Bona Fide HQ • $50
