We are so happy to have been included in the Alt Press Fest activities at the Main Library last weekend. Alternative press looks like many different things as a product, but as a process it is a way to have multiple voices delivered in a variety of media, through non-traditional routes. It is an opportunity for self-publishing and small publishing of perspectives that do not tend to be covered in broad news and traditional publishing. For us it was a perfect fit. Documenting our communities claims through conversation and photography. And it was a broad section of the community, our roughly 60 participants represented over 15 different zip codes. Some of their claims:
I claim my dolls.
I claim more Pokemon cards.
I claim that Alliance House is Happiness.
I claim my right to marry.
I claim my strength as a woman.
I claim my right to make bad art.
I want to claim more space for people on foot and people on bikes.
What will your claim be?
