At the Borderlands: When The Personal is Political
ACT Collective Zine Making Workshop

Ivan Arenas, Amanda Cortes, William Estrada, Silvia Gonzalez, Juan Carlos Perez, and Vanessa Sanchez (Part of the ACT Collective)

What is the role of art in creating new narratives and building towards creative and radical possibility? How can zines be used as educational tools? What is the history of zines? What power comes with self-publishing?

ACT (Artists Creating Transformation) Collective created a zine in 2016 on toxic levels of lead found in Chicago Public Schools. Come work with us in compiling information for a new zine we are working on that addresses “sanctuary.” What does “sanctuary” imply and what role do we play in defending or building a space of sanctuary in our interpersonal relationships and collective political experiences?

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition At The Borderlands: Mitos | Memory // new work by Silvia Gonzalez and Amy Reidel curated by Ann Meisinger

ACRE’s space is ADA Accessible. Please contact Kate Bowen (exhibitions (at) if you require additional accessibility information.
