In conjunction with the College Book Art Association's (CBAA) Rising Together, an exhibition of artist books, prints and zines with a social conscience, CBAA is launching a micro-grant program. The purpose of the CBAA Rising Together Micro-Grant program is to provide financial support that will enable current CBAA members to teach zine-making workshops in non-university settings. CBAA plans to award these $100 micro-grants in an effort to share book making knowledge with non-traditional book arts audiences and encourage broad participation in the Rising Together Zine Archive, a digital exhibit of zines about social justice issues.

WHO: Open to all current CBAA members

WHERE: Grant recipients must commit to teaching a free zine-making workshop to non-traditional book arts audiences at locations such as community centers, public k-12 schools, community libraries or art centers.
