The Scarborough Studies Collective

The Scarborough Studies Collective is an interdisciplinary and intergenerational collective comprised of UTSC alumni, students, and faculty, as well as Scarborough-based artists, community organizers, and residents from various fields and knowledge backgrounds. Our vision is to create a space for critical and creative dialogue about Scarborough, by Scarborough, and in Scarborough.

Scarborough Studies cordially invites you to attend our Zine Series Workshop(s) which will be held over the span of October – November 2019. With generous support from you and the community, we were able to bring the series to life and are so excited to present the series to the Scarborough community. For more information on zines, please see the following Youtube documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiqQrVrW9XY.

The purpose of the series is to have the community self-publish a body of Scarborough-centred narratives, which will be launched at a zine fest and compiled into a traveling library that can be exhibited across the campus and community.

Confirmed dates for workshops:

Thursday October 17th, 5:30-8:30 PM

Thursday October 24th, 5:30-8:30 PM

Friday November 1st, 5:30-8:30 PM

Friday, November 8th, 5:30-8:30 PM
