Makers and Dreamers: Behind the Scenes of Bateau

With BONUS Post-conversation after party with live music and art making
(Date and Zoom Link Forthcoming)



Join us for a conversation with the creative energies of COA’s very own Bateau Press.  Publishing talent near and far since the early 2000’s, Bateau has been an exciting project at COA since 2015. Hear about its evolution, the collective efforts, collaborations, and processes that bring Bateau’s many publications into being. Hang around afterwards and harness your own creativity to live music. Collage kits will be provided by the library by request prior to the event.  email:
