This will be a 1.5 partner swap.

1.5? How will that work you ask?

For this swap you will create:

  • 1 mini - zine OR 1 ATC to send to ME for my workshop (information below)


  • You may create and send as many as you like I will not say no to extras I have a lot to collect!

How do you rate and get rated?

  • You will be assigned a partner by the swap-bot system for that partner you will send a picture via email of the zine or ATC that you sent me. At this point I need zine's badly, I have received none, I have received about 20 ATC's so I need more of those but not as many.

  • As I receive packages I will post in the comments the name of the swapper who I received from.

  • You will rate your partner based on their name appearing in the comment section as sent to me AND when you receive the email with their photo. This is how we will confirm that they indeed sent to me and to you.

What else?

  • @racheljohnson has offered to send me some fabulous swap-bot swag to send to all of you in exchange for your participation in helping these amazing kids. I will package it all up and send them out to everyone who participates in this swap!

  • PLEASE, please inside your envie or packet put a little note that clearly states the following: your swap-bot username and the headline "Guerilla Art Workshop" This will distinguish this swap from my personal swaps.

  • PLEASE, please also include on your note your personal mailing address so I can send out your package. I will absolutely go out of my way to find your address if it is not in there, but it would make it much easier.

Here is the forum thread with lots more details and some links to the groups website and an amazing human rights youtube video these kids made ON THEIR OWN.

Information about the workshop:

I am doing a workshop at the Youth Town Meeting on Guerilla Art for Kids - I'm teaching them to make mini-zines and ATC's. The participants will be 6th - 8th graders from all over northern Vermont. Please gear your mini-zine or ATC toward that age group, meaning appropriate themes, public awareness, inspirational. Anything really.

I am presenting the workshop to 2 groups of 25 kids (50 kids total)

The group that puts on Youth Town Meeting is called The Youth Advisory Council of Caledonia & Southern Essex, in Vermont. I have been involved with them for about 11 years now, my mother is also one of their adult mentors and my daughter is now a part of the group.

@Barbara has already sent her zine! and I haven't even assigned partners yet. Way to be ahead of the game :) Don't forget once I assign partners you still have to send a picture of the swap to your assigned partner!
