Queer Zine Night with Jace and Bree – November 13th 7-10pm @ Communitywise

Another gathering of QZ night! As always, this is aims to be a safer space for queer folk of all identities — queer, trans, bi, nonbinary, agender, genderqueer, two spirit, and others!

Run by local artists/activists Jace Autumn and Bree Gardner, this group is a biweekly anti-oppression zine creation night.

We are located on Treaty 7 land, and organizers Jace and Bree are visitors of this land. We thank and acknowledge the caretakers of this land — the Blackfoot Nation, Piikani, Siksika, Stoney, Cree, and Tsuu T’ina Nations people for allowing us to have this event on their territory.

We are aiming to create a safer space for marginalized individuals and communities to express their experiences and identities. Both facilitators will be available for private communications both in-person and online.

No participation is mandatory – if you are feeling lonely and want an inclusive space for all ages (young AND old) come hang out on our couches. If you feel like collaborating with local artists, come meet some! If you want to work on your own thing, do so. We love your presence regardless of your intention in the space, so come hang out with us! If you don’t know, we can help figure it out 🙂

Community Wise is a semi-accessible space. Our current location is up one flight of stairs and does not have ramp/elevator access. The room itself is on the second floor (room 206) with windows, a balcony, and gender neutral washrooms. More accessible space is currently trying to be made available – however if you are interested in the event but cannot physically attend, online submissions will be accepted and interaction with the group via skype/messaging/video chat will be made as easy as possible for you. ASL interpretation will be provided if desired, as well as verbal translation into Arabic.

This is an all-ages alcohol-free space. Youth and seniors and everyone in between are welcomed for their varied life experience and identities. Childcare is not currently provided however you are welcome to bring your children to intermingle – we are working on childcare options for future events. Let us know if you need this service!!

Ongoing and consistent participation is not a requirement, however we would love to see everyone come and contribute both to individual zine projects and a monthly publication through Bree and Jace on multiple zine nights! If you can only show up for one, or semi-occasionally, don’t worry. We understand life happens and everyone has different needs. NO art/zine experience is required!

Supplies will be provided, however we encourage you to bring your own should you have access to them!

We are interested in all forms of visual arts! Poetry, native-plant recipes, images, photography, comics, and others are all exhilarating options for submissions. No formal art/zine experience is required.

Come have fun with us and bring your friends! And if you can’t access this space for any reason, please dont hestitate to message us – accessibility is our goal, so let us know what we can do to help!
