Women of Color Zine Symposium 2012

Last summer…the WOC Zine Workshops received a grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) to host our own symposium. The event took place Saturday, June 2nd at Portland State University (PSU’s Women’s Resource Center also co-sponsored).  It was a fun day of local WOC zinesters getting together to network and share their work with the larger Portland community. The day consisted of: zine tabling, guest speaker LaMesha Melton (creator of Cocoa/puss zine) hosted a workshop, and Rosebent (female hip hop group) performed.
