Participate in a Mobile Zine Tour!

The collective mobile zine project Cross Pollinate is looking for your participation in their show and tell zine tour. The central mission of Cross Pollinate is to create spaces and communities across the country for people to exchange wisdom, skills, ideas, and art. Participation in this tour may entail traveling in the zine mobile, contributing to Cross Pollinate's project at their local stops, organizing local events, and hosting tourmates in your home.  Though their exact route is not explicity planned, they shall venture out from California in the last week of June, head up through the West Coast, then eventually land in Nebraska in early August. They are still open for potential destinations, hosts, and organizers across the country. Cross Pollinate is especially interested in bringing their project to marginialized areas such as international communities, land projects, small towns and rural areas, and wheel-chair accessible venues.
