Celebrate new zines (DIY publications) by Chicago artists under 21.

Get copies of 6 new zines by members of the Teen Creative Agency about: how art is devalued by schools and academic institutions; emotional survival and self-care; recipes for home; how we distinguish between "real" and "fake"; and skate culture.

Browse zines by teens from all over Chicago.

Enjoy live performances.

Eat free snacks.

This event is free and open to everyone, regardless of age.

This event is designed and produced by members of the Teen Creative Agency—a group of young people ages 15 to 19 from all over Chicago that meet weekly at the museum—and Lead Artists Amina Ross and Jeremy Kreusch. TCA is assisted by Grace Needlman, Manager of Youth and Family Programs, Ellen Chu, Coordinator of Family, Youth, School, and Teacher Programs, and Victoria Bornstein, Family, Youth, School, and Teacher Programs Intern.
