In partnership with Paperhouse Outreach & Toronto Art Book Fair, Koffler.Digital hosted a series of digital workshops for youth as part of XYZines: a 4 month zine, artist book & digital residency at the Cedarbrae Toronto Public Library. The Koffler.Digital arm of XYZines was developed for and available to Scarborough youth aged 13-29, and focused on developing digital skills to help navigate politics, identity & justice through art production. Facilitated by local artists, each workshop aimed to bridge analogue & digital practices, engage participants in expressive methods of digital media-making, & introduce industry-standard practices oriented within DIY culture & political activism.
MYTH ZINE is a result of Kendra Yee's Illustration workshop, led on October 25, 2018. While learning the basics of Adobe Photoshop & InDesign, participants assembled their own mystical creatures inspired by personal tales.
Together, they created a whole new world, which Kendra Yee documented in the pages of this collaborative myth zine.
MYTH ZINE is available to view & download below.
