Archibald Weekend: Zine-making Workshop with Comic Sans & Liminal Magazine



This event is now complete. If you want to revisit the talk, visit our Library, or subscribe to the MPavilion podcast via iTunes, Pocketcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever else you get your podcasts.

Melbourne is home to an exciting and thriving zine community—one of the most prolific in Australia, if not the world. The zine as a medium, however, is still underrated, underutilised and sometimes misunderstood in the wider community. So let’s have some fun celebrating and spreading the zine love!

Join us in embracing the freedom of self-publishing—free from the aesthetic standards and demands of other types of storytelling and publishing. During the workshop you’ll learn about zines and get an introduction to the process of putting one together. But mostly you’ll be creating your very own to take home, share, sell or swap. We’ll be loosely exploring the themes of emotions and identity. Become the author of your own story—you get to decide (or be guided in a fun way to do whatever you feel like)

This zine-making workshop will be led by comic quarterly Comic Sans and Liminal magazine, as part of our Archibald Weekend presented by ANZ. 

We’ll supply all the materials, although feel free to bring your own (photos, photocopies, stickers, paraphernalia,etc). All levels welcome—no previous zine-making experienced required.

This event is programmed by M_Curators members Henry Nguyen and Jess Eddy.

The Archibald Weekend at MPavilion 2019 is proudly presented by ANZ.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
