Zine Workshop with Blue Ridge Juvenile Detention Center

June 2023

This was a closed workshop with youth from the Blue Ridge Juvenile Detention Center. Zines created during this workshop are on display now at the Bridge PAI & will be available for purchase (with proceeds benefiting the BRJD students) at this year's zine fest. 

Stay tuned for information on how you can be a part of constructing and distributing the BRJD zines.
