Can zines change the world?

Running September to May, Zines for Progress 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.

Zines for Progress is made possible with generous support from The Batchelor Foundation, Inc., Seligman Family Foundation, Wells Fargo, and The Garner Foundation.
