A Zine (pronounced ‘zeen’) is a lo-fi, self-published mini magazine that can easily be made and distributed (either through photocopies or digitally). Historically they have been used by artists, activists and young people to share information, stories, ideas and artworks with peers and strangers via zine swaps, zine fairs, or even leaving them in public places like on train seats, or slipping them into library shelves.
Outloud runs zine making workshops at events, where we collect writing, drawings, photos and ideas from people attending, scan them in, and make collaborative digital zines from the artworks!
You can see some of our previous zines online:
- Belmore Youth Resource Centre Youth Summer Markets 2022
- International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism & Transphobia 2021
- Warrior Day Zine created in collaboration with a local Canterbury-Bankstown High School
If you’d like us to bring our Zine table to your event to capture attendees thoughts, feelings and ideas, as well as evaluation or a memento of the day, get in touch!
