Akin Projects invites you to to the Akin Creative Zine Jam! Bring a current project to work on or bring a new project to start. The facilitators will be creating their own experimental zine throughout the duration of the workshop.

This will be a hands-on work session with materials provided, beer sales and tunes. The facilitators will have their personal collection of zines and reference materials on site to inform and inspire you. Never made a zine before? No problem! A simple template will be provided for beginners to make their first mini zine!

Participants are encouraged to bring photos, fabrics, writings or anything personal to them that they would like to include in their zine.

This event is part of Toronto Art Book Week. Art Book Week is a series of city wide events that parallel the Toronto Art Book Fair. Art book week will feature book launches, performances, talks, pop-up exhibitions, and screenings throughout Toronto. The goal of art book week is to bring attention to new and exciting artist’s book projects as well as increase the visibility of Toronto’s art publishing community.
