SPACE JAM at Mission Creek FestivalApril 6-10, 2016
Iowa City, IA
SPACE JAM was a FREE temporary creative space designed to facilitate shared experiences & unexpected interactions, celebrate diversity, play and participation, and offer a respite in between Mission Creek events.
The Reading Room & Lounge featured over 150 small-press publications, artist books, zines, and experimental printed matter submitted by over 50 artists, writers, poets, and presses from an open call. We also offered a series of FREE zine workshops and an activity space with materials & instructions to make a zine on-the-spot.
Zine workshop facilitators: Kevynne Wimberley, Aurora Green, Alea Adigweme, Taylor Yocom, Michelle Moode, Giovana Valdez & Breanne Trammell, Amanda Lechner
