Sunday Parkways x IPRC: Virtual BIPOC Zine Creator’s Workshop

September 23, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm

The IPRC is working with Sunday Parkways to make September a month of zine making for all of Portland! Each week will feature a different workshop facilitated by a local artist. We’ll be making a community zine called Portland’s Got Talent with submissions that will be printed and bound at the IPRC.

Words from Geeta about this workshop:
The stories of we Black…, Indigenous…, People of (every melanated) Color are our stories to tell, our way, and in our own voices. Making our own zines is one way of controlling our BIPOC narratives.
This workshop is designed to cover three key areas regarding how I create zines that celebrate BIPOC-centric narratives: The Written Word in Three Storytelling Formats, In Living Color, and Transactional Reparations.

*Watch the workshop live on Sunday Parkways Facebook livestream. RSVP here.

*Suggested $20 donation for the workshop includes a finished copy of the Portland’s Got Talent Community Zine!
