Zine Machine / Arts Education

​​In partnership with Broken Pencil Magaizne, I launched an experimental arts education intiative to explore a variety of zine  and alternative art making practices in collaboration with young people.

Zine Machine is a multidisciplinary arts education initiative rooted in the spirit of zine making and alternative arts. Lead by a roster of diverse artists, Zine Machine performs a type of alternative pedagogy that is not afraid to let loose and get messy. In the past our projects have seen us get lost in a series of high rise apartments in the GTA, play Arabic hiphop in the library, and help a teen make an elaborate ‘choose-your-own-getting-arrested-adventure” zine. Our method of exploratory art making is also a means of building community whether that be with children in the classroom, teens in the GTA, or adults in the backroom of the Gladstone Hotel. Zine Machine is a micro-utopia making-machine that generates new ways of thinking about art making, learning, and community building.
