Stay Gold
The Real Imagined: A Collaborative Zine
June 30 – September 1
Tuesdays from 5-7 p.m. via Zoom

This program was designed for the intergenerational LGBTQIA+ community.

Ages 13-100+ welcome!!!

Space is limited!! Sign-up here.

This program provides a space for intergenerational connections within the LGBTQIA+ community to be made through shared autobiographical storytelling and zine-making. Artist and intuitive Asher Hartman encourages intuitive making and creating, connecting each participant with deeper aspects of the self or parts of ourselves we may not be consciously connected to. A focus on making guided by intuition allows for a space of vulnerability, honesty and discovery to open up.

Each week, via Zoom, participants will walk-through the process of unfolding their experiences to reveal what may lie unseen or unacknowledged. Each session will build upon the previous week culminating in a collection of narratives that will be included in a zine. Participants will also create visual elements to accompany their narrative. Each participant will receive a copy of the zine at the end of the program.

This workshop series combines text and the visual, walks through the writing process and how to use this as a tool for self-awareness and self-expression, and teaches participants about self-publishing and how zines can be used as a tool to both subvert dominant narratives (often told about us, without us) while also providing an outlet for artistic production.

Facilitated by Asher Hartman
Asher Hartman is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, director and intuitive practitioner, whose work at the junction of visual art and theater centers on the exploration of the self in relation to Western histories and ideologies.
