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.
Aliya Pabani's workshop on November 7th, 2018 introduced participants to the basics of podcast-making. Using digital tools to formulate their thoughts & ideas into a podcast, youth participants not only learned how to make a podcast, but how to get a podcast into people’s earbuds when it’s done.
