Can zines change the world?
Zines for Progress, a pilot education initiative, has just finished its first year! Running September to May, the program is available for language arts, history, and visual arts classes for grades 6–12 in Miami-Dade County. Engaging students in critical thinking and social activism while bolstering art making and writing skills, Zines for Progress challenges teens to:
- Examine relevant contemporary issues facing their communities;
- Explore a history of social activism represented in The Wolfsonian’s collection both online and through class tours of our museum and library;
- Create their own zines in an artist-led workshop at The Wolfsonian; and,
- Share finished zines with their schools, families, and communities via the Wolfsonian-FIU’s digital archive.
