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.
