Not Yet web series and The Unapologetically Brown Series hosted a Pop Up at New Women Space Sunday, July 15th. It was an afternoon of art, food and fellowship. Cósmica hosted a collage making workshop highlighting different women in the arts, culture, music, and social justice.
Cósmica was invited to be a part of Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturday to celebrate the Radical Women: 1960-1985 show. We did a workshop celebrating different radical women and had participants make candles in their image with a bunch of fun art materials.
OMG. The Feminist Collective at William Paterson University is the MOST amazing. They brought Cósmica to the art gallery there to do a collage workshop around femme bodies.

The yearly festival that celebrates the Latino community’s history in the Lower East Side graciously welcomed Cósmica to hold a candle-decorating workshop.

Working with Voces Ciudadanas, Cósmica members Itzel Martinez and Maribel Falcon led a zine-making workshop for kids from the neighborhood of Sunset Park. They each came up with an idea about a topic for their zine and cut up materials found in old magazines to create their own personal zine. Topics included space, bullying, dreams, exercise and comics! Here are some of the participants with their zines 😀
