Candlelight Press was a zine club founded and directed by Kat Wawrykow and assisted by Taryn Garrett at the Alberta College of Art and Design.
The club’s mandate was to improve the mental health of students through peer mentoring and by providing a safe space to recharge creatively.
Events featured zine materials, guest speakers, fresh flowers, soft lighting and food provided by community sponsors. These events were free to the public and prioritized accessibility.
In 2017 Kat Wawrykow received the Van Sellers Memorial Scholarship for creativity and innovation for establishing Candlelight Press.
