Collective Memory: Queersalis Conversations

Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 4-6p

@ Co-Prosperity Sphere

Collective Memory: Queersalis Conversations is a panel conversation on how queer zine and print collectives of color thrive, organize, collaborate, and build community in Chicago. Feat. Marimacha Monarca Press, XicX Zine Collective, and Brown and Proud Press; three collectives that know each other personally share in conversation how they each came to their own and why it's important to share their stories. In hopes of illuminating the power of writing our collective hxstories, this event centers queer, immigrant, and people of color narratives. This is an open conversation and the audience is encouraged to ask questions as well as network. Print media from each collective will be available for donations and sharing.

This event will happen in conjunction with Networks of Resistance, an exhibition organized by the international printmaking collective Justseeds, on view at Co-Prosperity Sphere from October 12 through November 3, 2019.

Collective Memory: Queersalis Conversations and Justseeds: Networks of Resistance are part of Togetherism, a two-month program curated by Public Media Institute to celebrate and examine the work of artist groups, coalitions, and collectives.
