Charge in partnership with Zine Fest Houston (Maria Heg, Anastasia Kirages and Sarah Welch), invite you to a Drink & Draw Zine-making Workshop focused on Self Care.

Organized by Charge co-organizer Jennie Ash, participants are invited to collectively create a zine exploring what individual, community-based and/or collective self-care looks like, entails, requires, or provokes for artists, curators, organizers, researchers, and educators in Houston. The final product will be a zine journal, available both as a pdf and in print.

Zines have the potential to transform the ways we retain and share knowledge across communities and this workshop aims to explore how we can use zines to understand and represent self-care systems and community based learning.

This will be a space for creating, reflecting, and an opportunity to share personal narratives and find solidarity within your local community. Attendees will be emailed a series of questions to consider before the workshop in preparation.

The final zine will encapsulate what we cover during our conversations, along with any personal contributions of words and art.

We will have pens, markers, glitter, photos, magazines, and glue sticks galore.

This event is free and open to artists, curators, organizers, researchers, and educators in Houston.

This event is inspired by "Self Care for Skeptics", a zine that approaches self care through the lenses of feminism and queer theory curated by Lauren Fournier (www.laurenfournier.net)

The Charge house is part of Project Row Houses Round 44: Shattering the Concrete: Artists, Activists, and Instigators curated by Raquel de Anda @ Project Row Houses March 26 - June 19, 2016. Charge is co-organized by Jennie Ash and Carrie Schneider
