Event details

Zines (pronounced ‘zeens’) are an accessible, versatile outlet for ideas, art and writing. From their origins in early twentieth century science fiction fandom, in more proximate times zines have become an important part of political movements and participatory culture, often giving a voice to marginalised groups. Zines have focused on Black issues, protest/activism, law enforcement etc. and most recently zines have been used as part of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Find out more about the history and theory of underground self-publishing, and maybe get inspiration for creating your own one-page zine in this hands-on virtual workshop. This event is open to students and staff and will be an online workshop via Microsoft Teams.
