Pandemic Voices: Zines on Zoom
The Zines on Zoom events served to promote the Washington Center for the Book’s project, Sheltered in Place: COVID-19 Zine Diaries Project. We organized a focus group and a workshop to teach adults about zine culture and zine-making with the goal of inspiring them to create a zine to submit to the Sheltered in Place project. In these two virtual events, we celebrated zines and highlighted their ability to both exemplify and preserve human expression. We hoped to help participants process their feelings during the pandemic in a flexible and creative format.
