LGBTQ+ Immigrants: Create Your Own Artists’ Book

April 19, 2022

We partnered with Queer Detainee Empowerment Project (QDEP) and Brooklyn Community Pride Center to bring together an exciting series of artists’ book workshops in May and June!

Booklyn artist and educator María Verónica San Martín will teach bookmaking techniques that support personal and community storytelling. Each workshop will provide the basic background, skills, and techniques for learners of all experience levels to express their ideas and create their own artists’ books while creating a space for the mutual exchange of information and experiences. By the end of each workshop, participants will create their own one-page book edition to take home with the possibility of contributing to a collaboratively-made book. 

This is a free workshop. Find out more information here: https://lgbtbrooklyn.org/events/lgbtq-immigrants-create-your-own-artists-book/

Spots are limited – to register, please send an email with your name and phone number to QDEP at [email protected].

Create Your Own Artists’ Book is presented by Booklyn, Inc in collaboration with QDEP and Brooklyn Community Pride Center and is made possible in part by funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the NY City Council.
