One Woman Workshop: A ResidenZINE by Rosina Riccardo
Saturday, December 14th to Sunday, December 15th, 2013 – CIVIC Space (411 Pelissier Street, Windsor, Ontario)
A zine is a small edition of self-made, self-published bodies of work made up of text, photos, or found content. Since 2010, Rosina Riccardo has been creating and assembling zines of her own, and most recently hosts Zine Workshop Nights at CIVIC Space on a bi-weekly basis (the next date being Wednesday, December 18th at 7pm).
For a new and upcoming two-day (weekend) residency, Rosina will create content from scratch, which will reflect her time spent observing and interacting with the downtown core. Upon completion, a limited run of the zines will be made available to the public at Civic Space. Stay tuned for more info!
Introducing: All Tomorrow’s Preserves, a special version of All Tomorrow’s Problems happening this Monday, March 25th at 7pm! (CIVIC SPACE, 411 Pelissier)
We’re pleased to announce that tomorrow, March 25th at 7pm, Jen Delos Reyes is teaming up with All Tomorrow’s Problems and this time we’re making jam. This idea came out of an exercise included in her current exhibition up at CIVIC SPACE, The Social Practice Workbook, wherein the Fallen Fruit collective suggested jam-making as a practice for changing the way you see the world (and making new friends along the way).
The All Tomorrow’s Preserves jam theme of the evening is as follows:
It’s About Thyme! Strawberry Jam!
We’re starting with a simple but delicious natural-pectin strawberry jam, made with fresh thyme and your loving hands. This thyme it’s personal, so bring your friends and come jam with us and talk about the ideas whose time have come for the City of Windsor.
We have the ingredients covered, but if you’re attending, consider bringing along an apron or two! See you Monday, March 25th at 7pm!
All Tomorrow’s Problems (ATP), a weekly Design Night focused on creative and speculative problem solving. ATP focuses on collaborative, Windsor-focused problem solving and project making, informed by weekly discussion and design nights. We’re looking for collaborative critical thinkers, problem solvers, and action-takers with an eye on the future of this city.
Another week, some more steps forward in our attempts at a planter that can have a magnet embedded in it. While it wasn’t looking like we were making any real progress, this idea came up near the end of Office Hours—plastic cups with holes, paper pulp, and a small cup on the inside to make a mold. I think we’re getting really close to having a workable planter.

It’s been a busy last week, getting back from Victoria, and launching the Text In-Transit Call For Submissions, but we still had time to meet for our weekly Office Hours and continue working with the Massey Physics Club. Our adventures in paper making for an upcoming planters project we have in mind, and in learning more high school physics and math are after the jump.
