DOORS OPEN BINGO 2023: PRINT YOUR OWN CARD
In partnership with Historic Milwaukee, Inc.
We collaborated with Historic Milwaukee to design and print over 1,000 letterpress BINGO cards related to this year's city-wide Doors Open event. Pick up a card at select locations and fill yours out as you explore Milwaukee's most wonderous places! Reach out to HMI to learn more: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't have time to pick one up? No problem: you can print your own right at home and still use it to play and submit to HMI for a prize at the end. This handy PDF version is formatted to print double-sided (if you like) to take on your Doors Open journey.
Completed cards can be handed in at the Historic Milwaukee Store at 235 E Michigan Street for a free Doors Open Button and a chance to win the grand prize. See card for details!
Doors Open is September 23 and 24th, 2023
The event is free and open to the public all over Milwaukee!
TEACHING ARTISTS & WRITERS
On-going call for workshop instructors
The Bindery regularly hosts classes for the public to learn about a wide variety of topics related to literature, editing, book making, letterpress/relief printing, Risography, paper craft, and other associated fields.
An official call for classes will be launched in winter of 2023; in the meantime area writers and artisans are encouraged to reach out to gather more information about our facility, and propose any ideas for feedback prior to the more official announcement. Instructors are contracted workers paid for their time, and reimbursed for materials.
Please email Managing Director, Zachary Lifton, to request more information or to be put on a contact list for the more official call in upcoming months.
VOLUNTEER AT MILWAUKEE ZINE FEST
Annual call for zine fest volunteers
The Bindery produces Milwaukee Zine Fest every spring in partnership with the Milwaukee Public Library. The fest has been entirely volunteer-run for 15 years and we rely on our community to come together to pull off this awesome event annually!
Volunteering for the fest is great way to meet other zinesters, shape the festival's future, and feel all the warm fuzzies one gets from working to create a beloved, diverse, and welcoming celebration of zines.
Those interested in volunteering for the day of the fest should fill out the registration form below with their info and availability. Anyone interested in deeper involvement such as festival planning or year 'round programming can reach out directly to email@example.com.
