Art + Feminism is a global initiative made up of “students,

Our theme focuses on the art of comics, graphic novels, and zines, but
participants are welcome to work on any topic related to Art +

one-on-one help. The event will also feature hands-on creative
activities, including zine making and basic cartooning. Everyone is
welcome, and food will also be provided.
