The POC Zine Project: Creative Expressions of Educational Pleasures and Dangers
Daniela Capistrano and Tracey Brown
Diana Center 502
Zines and other independent materiality have the potential to transform the ways we retain and share knowledge across communities and we must make sure making sure the voices of people of color are included and providing leadership in these methods. Drawing on the experience of POC Zine Project volunteers who have worked in schools and after school programs nationwide, we will explore zine making for education and how we can use zines to understand and represent educational systems and community based learning.
