“The function of art is to do more than tell it like it is-it’s to imagine what is possible.”

Current Project

Mission

Outspokin’ & Bookish is part pop-up feminist zine/art object collection and part playful, mobile maker space focused on print media in Tucson, AZ. The Outspokin’ & Bookish mission includes cultivating social connectedness, sense of belonging, celebration of difference, and pride of place through sharing DIY publishing and print media-making practices and tools via bicycle.

What I Do

Pop-up Activities

Find me at various Tucson events with a thoughtfully curated feminist zine collection and supplies to help you create your own zine! Invite me to your open, free, and community-centered events.

Creative Workshops

I offer tailored workshops, trainings, consultations, & collaborations that increase the creative capacity within ourselves and our neighbors and grow creative community. I strive to facilitate and collaborate with critical generosity and radical empathy in all that I do and create.

Community Building

If you are an activist or artist who would like to participate in future art education programming, or a Tucson community member interested in collaborating on public art or education projects, please feel free to reach out!
