Jacksonville, the largest city in Florida, is a jewel of the Sunshine State that has changed so much over the years. Founded in 1791, it is important for Jacksonville to have an abundance of photographs to archive the city’s rich history. By viewing old photos of Jacksonville, people can learn about the history of the city and how much it has changed from its founding to the present. That’s where the Jacksonville Neighborhood Photo Project comes in.
Teen Zine is a series of workshops made to encourage teens to get creative, to collaborate, share ideas, and have their voices heard. The series was hosted on Saturdays in the Teen Department of the Main Library from May 5th to June 16th. The workshops allowed teens to congregate, talk to artists and zine writers, and work together to make their very own zine.
