Spring Break Zine Camp

April 1, 2023

Our first week of Zine Camp was really special, so we’re doing it again April 10-14 during spring break!

Kids ages 7-10 are invited to sign up for 5 full days of hands-on zine and bookmaking activities at Old Stone House (at Washington Park & JJ Byrne Playground) in Park Slope. We’ll teach zine-making as a community-centered practice, one that builds social-emotional learning and teaches skill development for the creation of self-determined storytelling.

Emma Karin Eriksson created our signature curriculum. She is a Young Adult Librarian at Brooklyn Public Library and a longtime zine creator, known widely for the Radical Domesticity series. Educators, Jan Descartes and Monica Johnson will lead Zine Camp again, along with a couple visiting artists (TBD).
