Looking for a creative way to get involved in the fight against human trafficking? Join us for a hands-on participatory art session with students from the George Mason University’s School of Art.
During this hands-on session, students will lead attendees to create a small book (zine) about the subject of human trafficking with simple materials in response to the Golden Doors to Freedom exhibit on display outside the project room in the Torpedo Factory’s main atrium. Participants can draw, pen written messages, collage newspaper articles, apply color markers, and collaborate together as family members to create their zine. The zines will be given to the participants who make them and others will be hung in the project room to build up a collection of public responses to the human trafficking issues.
George Mason University students will also show the zines they have made in regards to human trafficking, which will be available for modest purchase prices ($10 and under). Their works illustrate the accessibility and power of the zine bookmaking movement.
Workshops held on the following dates in November: 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 25 from 10:30 am – 1:30 pm at Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Va.
