Learnapalooza is an annual day of free workshops taught across your neighborhood and open to the public. Classes are taught by community members and local businesses, hosted in 10-20 businesses and community centers across the neighborhood. This will be Learnapalooza’s 5th year in Wicker Park, and there are more than 15 participating hosts, more than 50 classes, and will be between 350-500 attendees.
This year, artist Edie Fake (Gaylord Phoenix, Memory Palaces) will teach you how to make a zine!

Quimby’s is proud to team up with the organizers of Learnapalooza, a free, day-long neighborhood festival happening on June 19, 2010 in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago where community members, both businesses and residents, will exchange skills with one another. Anyone who has anything to share – and basically we all do – can offer a workshop. The idea is to provide a fun and free way for neighbors to share their passions and for everyone to learn new skills. The organizers of the festival hope that all attendees will realize how much they have to teach and learn from others.
Of course Quimby’s is participating! We’re offering three workshops about how to get involved in independent publishing, since that’s of course what we’re known for. Each of our workshops are 45 minutes long, and they’re at 2:00, 3:00 and 4:00 that day. There are workshops in a variety of places, and we hope that you’ll stop in to Quimby’s to attend our portion of the ‘palooza! You are of course welcome to come in on the day of as a walk-in, but if you RSVP to tell us ya think you might make it, we’d appreciate it so we know how many people to expect.
