Mary Ann Shadd was an educator, publisher, and the first Black woman in North America to publish and edit a newspaper, The Provincial Freeman. Inspired by Shadd’s history, Paper & Play looks to celebrate the newspaper as both a material and tool for community connection and communication.
Maybe you have a penpal, or would like one! Perhaps secret love notes? Or top-secret missives to far away places? In this easy drop-in workshop participants will be led through some simple folding to create an envelope…but what to put inside? We will create a mini found word poem with the scraps of newspaper to keep inside our envelopes.
