Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

The OCAD U Zine Library is celebrating our 10-year anniversary on November 14th. We hope you can join us as we celebrate the amazing and potentially transformative power of zines!

The collection’s founder, Alicia Nauta, will open the evening with a short talk about their reasons for starting the collection and the importance of zines to their life. This will be followed by a short show and tell by various students talking about zines that changed their lives. Staff from Broken Pencil magazine will be on site recording an episode of their new podcast, so come to share and record your experience with zines! The night will feature even more zine fun with snacks, collaborative zine making, button making, a zine reading nook, and a roundtable discussion with zine creators organized by students of Prof. Sheila Sampath’s Nano Publishing class.

The ZINE POWER exhibition will feature work by 15 artists from the OCAD U and Toronto zine community. The exhibit will feature completed publications, as well as the rough notes, sketches and other process documents that are generated in the making of a zine to give viewers a deeper insight to the experiences of zine creators. The ZINE POWER exhibition is up from November 6 to December 1, 2017.

The OCAD U Zine Library was launched on November 14, 2007 by former OCAD U student and Toronto artist Alicia Nauta.
