    The Soapbox: Community Print Shop & Zine Library presents A Collaborative Sculpture Project to Commemorate Those Lost by the Coronavirus Pandemic, online

    The Soapbox is a nonprofit community print shop, book and zine making center, and library of 3,500 rare handmade publications – one of only a few spaces in the country that combines zine, book arts, and poetry chapbook worlds in one location. Since 2011, we have been offering affordable workshops, equipment access, art exhibits, readings, a reading room, and edible printing events.

    About this Event

    Join 100,000 Folds in honoring and mourning COVID-19 victims through origami. This community sculpture project is folding 100,000 pieces of paper - one for each of the first 100,000 deaths in the United States from the pandemic. During this event, gather virtually with artist Joanna Hutchinson to learn to make the folded pieces, and build community while folding with others. The folded paper units will be assembled into larger sculptures to be displayed in Philadelphia upon completion, when it is safe to do so. Participants in this online folding session will get a sneak preview of some of the plans for the final sculpture. Participants will receive a package of 45 custom cut sheets of paper to fold during this event, sent to the mailing address provided through the USPS. After the event, participants are asked to send their folded work to the artist by USPS. This online event requires students to have a device to join the class with reliable internet access. Please RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/100000-folds-a-collaborative-sculpture-project-tickets-123572409403 to receive the Zoom link. 

     If you are interested in participating in the project, but not the online event, you can sign up to work independently at 100thousandfolds.com.
