How does an artistic practitioner navigate their relationship with the community which they position themselves within and respond to? How are notions of advocacy, kinship, resistance, and trauma expressed through varied figurations of image and text? In this panel, the three artists who are committed to either working across print media or creating works on paper cogitate the intersection of contemporary art practice and community roots that is situated in the ever-changing political and cultural landscapes of our time.
ZIPE is a free Zine Production and Exchange Program offered by Paperhouse Outreach Collective in partnership with SKETCH Working Arts and Toronto Art Book Fair, for youth and young adults (13-29) who identify as one or multiple: 2SLGBTQIAP, disabled or POC, led by local artists who also self-id as a member of the above communities. Youth will learn about the historical significance and power of zines and artists’ books, creative writing, image, and printing skills, in addition to gaining an understanding of how to sell and table work professionally. ZIPE will culminate into a series of tabling opportunities, including Zine Dream 11.
