Hey, we did a thing—Zine Camp!

During mid-winter recess—February 20-24, 2023—schools are out, so we are offering a week of hands-on zine and bookmaking activities for kids aged 7-10.

Space is limited!

Today’s the day!

It’s #GivingTuesday 🤑 and we’re raising funds to support our education program!

Our goal of $3,000 provides art supplies for 150 students. To give a sense of your dollar-for-dollar impact, $20 provides art supplies for one student; $40 for two students, and so on. Can you help us reach this goal?

Transpire Zinemaking Workshop

In this series of two workshops, Elvis Bakaitis will teach the one-page zine technique to facilitate the development of personal and community-based storytelling at Brooklyn Community Pride Center.
