Hey, kids and other young-people types: what looks like a super-fun zine workshop will take place this Saturday afternoon at ThreeWalls with Anne Elizabeth Moore, based on the Cambodian zines featured in her current project Holle Cambodia. Moore’s website indicates it’s a youth program that’s free for kids; adults (who are welcome to participate, too) should be prepared to donate 5 bucks. More details, below.
Zine Workshop with Anne Elizabeth Moore at ThreeWalls
Join us on Saturday, March 7, 2009 from 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm for a zine workshop with writer, artist and activist Anne Elizabeth Moore. We’ll provide the supplies and refreshments.
“Staunch critic of consumerism and media activist Anne Elizabeth Moore has been writing, publishing, and interceding in culture since the age of 15. The indomitable author of Unmarketable: Brandalism, Copyfighting, Mocketing, and the Erosion of Integrity, founding editor of the Best American Comics series, and former editor of now-defunct Punk Planet has seen her work exhibited in major museums, praised by the business press, and forcibly ejected from retail establishments.
Recently, Moore went to Cambodia to teach the first generation of feminists in the country self publishing as a way of combating governmental oppression and self-censorship, and co-founded the Anti-Advertising Agency’s Foundation For Freedom, an organization that aims to limit advertising in the public sphere by offering cash incentives and giant novelty checks to ad pros in exchange for quitting their jobs. She currently teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and travels throughout the globe to lecture on corporate and governmental oppression and freedom of expression.”
A five dollar donation is suggested at the door.
