Boojum & Snark!


Find your creative voice by making a zine!

With graphic designer Claire Speight and award-winning poet Maggie Sawkins.

Do you live, work or play in the Bay area? Would you like to share your outlook and story or just try something new? Then why not join our zine-making workshops? Zines are neat little DIY magazines that are a wonderful mash-up of stories, art, words, and illustrations that give a voice to differing points of view. Working in groups, you will be guided by Claire and Maggie in exploring shared themes around life in the Bay. Using techniques including collage, drawing, mark-making and other print techniques, Claire will help you develop your story visually. The zines, printed on a Riso press, will then be distributed throughout the community as well as forming part of a summer window installation and be part of a final exhibition at the Quay Arts Centre in spring 2023!

“This project will provide creative opportunities for storytelling and communicating different perspectives of living in the Bay area. What would you like to say to promote understanding?” Tracy Mikich
