Ottawa’s edition of Canada’s biggest zine festival features local and visiting exhibitors, hands-on print workshops, radical zine readings, an exhibit of BIPOC diaspora zines, and more! Free to all!
Community Wisdom Tours: Facing Claude Cahun & Marcel Moore • 1pm, 2pm, & 3pm • Meet at the Canzine Welcome Table, (Third Floor)
Take a tour of the OAG exhibition Facing Claude Cahun & Marcel Moore — the genderqueer photography of early 20th century artists Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore. Each hourly tour will be led by a queer, trans, or gender non-conforming zine artist, who will ground the tour in their own experience and response to the work.
All-Ages Drop-in Workshop: These Are Not The Beasts of My Youth • 12:30pm-2pm • OAG Studio
Using visual and written prompts, poet Matthew Walsh (These Are Not the Potatoes of My Youth) and short story writer J.R. McConvey (Different Beasts) invite participants to write a postcard to their favourite “beast” (real or imagined). Take the card home or add it to the “Wall of Beasts”. This workshop is for all ages! Signed books by both authors will be available at the event for purchase.
Creative Sundays: Canzine Edition • 10am-12:30pm • OAG Studio
Come by the Gallery’s free weekly arts drop-in for all ages and join in a special zine jam as part of the all-day zine festival at OAG. We’ll be cutting, folding, collaging and typing our way to creating our own fanzines, comics, and tiny books to take home or to share with others. Materials provided!
