Zines Grow Up: re:Active’s latest re:magazine launch

reimage1.jpgQ: What do flier-making, zine-creating punks do when they grow up? A: They go to art school and form nonprofits dedictated to student arts education. At least, that’s what my friend Michael did. His nonprofit organization, re:Active, uses the production of a theme-based magazine to inspire students to pursue their creativity and jobs in design-related fields. This Sunday from 4:30 to 6:30 at Family bookstore (436 N. Fairfax) they are launching the latest magazine issue, “Dead-end door, re:vealed,” a collaborative effort with 826LA and created by the students of LA High. Both re:Active and 826LA are pretty damn cool organizations, and coming out for the launch is a great way to support youth voices. If you can’t make it, you can still buy a magazine online after the launch. Also, re:Active is expanding to the Portland area and is looking for volunteers so spread the word.
