Please note, this event is now taking place at Salford Museum and Art Gallery and the new times for this event are 14:00-15:30.
All are welcome to learn about and celebrate the role of the 'Little Magazines' in the creative and cultural African American movement, the Harlem Renaissance. In this three-hour workshop, Dr Emma Barnes will explore the Harlem Renaissance and the emergence of 'Opportunity', a journal that featured writers including Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston and Claude McKay. Then, you will have the chance to make your own 'Opportunity' inspired zines or 'Little Magazines' that celebrate African American literature, music, and dance.
Materials and light refreshments will be provided. Recommended for age 12 and above.
This event is part of a series exploring 'Being Human in the Age of Zines', led by the University of Salford.
