2019 Event Program 

12 pm
Zinefest opens

Streaks of Lavender – Queer Resistance Participatory Writing
Lead by Iemi Hernandez-Kim, María José, RK Pérez, Courtney Surmanek, Al Valentín, Jack York
What can we learn from works by historic and contemporary queer writers to inform our rage, analyze our responses, and create new narratives to celebrate and empower our communities? In this workshop, alums of the Creative Writing from Queer Resistance workshop (conceived by Nancy Agabian) will guide participants through interactive writing exercises and discussions inspired by short readings from queer authors as well as selections from their new zine Streaks of Lavender. This workshop offers a space for writers of all levels to support and learn from each other in writing for social justice, and participants will be encouraged to share their responses.

Imagining Feminist Interfaces

Lead by Becca Ricks, Zoe Bachman, and Katrina Peterson
Technology is often described as “disruptive,” while it serves to perpetuate existing power structures. It’s not an accident, for instance, that our technologies that function effectively as “caregivers” or “secretaries” are designed to have female voices. What does it mean to imagine an alternative, feminist voice interface? In this workshop, we’ll engage participants in an speculative design exercise to think about what voice technologies and software could look like if we designed them in line with the central commitments of feminism: participation, agency, embodiment, equity, empowerment, plurality, and justice. We’ll work together to speculate and imagine possible futures for voice technologies. Note: This is not a technical workshop and no background knowledge is required. We invite anyone to participate.

POC Zinemaker’s Roundtable 
Lead by Pooja Desai, Aurora Diaz, Nadya Agrawal, M
ehr Sharma and Erica Cardwell
All POC makers to the front. This roundtable will engage zinemakers and programmers in a pay it forward conversation where facilitators will introduce their community work and engage participants in the room in conversation about vehicles of support within the POC zine community. The goal of this session is for participants to walk away having identified meaningful partnerships that lead to collaborative relationships after the zinefest. Note: This workshop is meant for POC-identifying folks only.

Self Defense Workshop
Lead by Laurel Leckert

Barnard Zine Library Tour
Lead by Jenna Freedman, Zine Librarian at Barnard College
The Barnard Zine Library, located on the second floor of the Milstein Center, which you can get to without going outside, houses about ten thousand zines. The collection is comprised of zines made predominantly by women, is a default queer space, and is intentional about its inclusion of zines by people of color. We’ll share our mission and values in zine collecting and give you the scoop on how we acquire, catalog, shelve, and provide access to these essential primary sources of punk and DIY activism.

Zinefest’s Soapbox Talks
Closing #FZFNYC is a program dedicated to educating and sharing ideas in short presentations and zine readings no longer than 15 minutes each.
