To encourage others to fall in love with self-publishing the carbon based mistake founded the Art Exchange Program, which offers two different small grants on an annual basis. One grant is for the veteran zine maker and one is for the beginner. Creating art goes beyond whether or not you’re making money from it. People make art because they love doing it. The Art Exchange Program is an award of thanks for that and hopefully an incentive to try your hand at what might just become a life long obsession. It’s called perpetual art, and we need more of it.

The Art Exchange Program is currently on hiatus, but please visit the main website for past recipients and more info.
