Zines are an excuse for bringing together people, ideas, experiences and trades. They are a portable, affordable and personal way of creating, exploring self-representation and communicating critical discourses. This form of communication, of “putting in common”, is highly political because creators learn and manage the means of production and make a shift from the personal to the public.
Participants will not only learn concrete ways of producing their own material, but also discover the importance of their voices and stories. This has a positive impact on self-esteem and the way creators see themselves and their backgrounds. By working with the print shop and this feminist self-publishing workshop, the community can create content of their own, without intermediaries. No matter who you are, where you come from or if you an artist, zines are an invitation to play and create.
