2/5/17 – UPDATE! Our guest performer will be Alana Amram. Alana hails from upstate New York, Brooklyn and now lives in Los Angeles. Before focusing on music, she was a zinester, a filmmaker, and spent her teenage years in NYC clubs and D.I.Y. spaces.

Gabe Fowler of Desert Island Comics will talk about his work on RESIST!, a woman-centric comics newspaper that comments on a Trump presidency. Gabe will discuss the factors that compelled him to highlight women’s voices after the 2016 presidential election, and the overwhelming response to the zine’s call for artists.

RESIST! is a special issue of Smoke Signal published by Desert Island. It is edited by Françoise Mouly, art editor of The New Yorker, and writer Nadja Spiegelman. A grassroots network of volunteers distributed free copies of the zine at Women’s Marches across the country on January 21, 2017. RESIST! has received coverage from the Washington PostBleeding Cool, Hyperallergic, and Melville House Publishing.

Space is limited. Reserve your tickets now!

This event is part of Beyond Patience & Fortitude, The City Reliquary’s event series in political advocacy and civic engagement, and in celebration of the diversity of NYC.
