Come along to the Salford Zine Maker Space to create your own zines inspired by the South African DRUM magazine!
In this fun, free and creative three-hour workshop, BBC New Generation Thinker Dr Jade Munslow Ong will introduce the pioneering anti-apartheid writing, photography and politics of the South African DRUM magazine of the 1950s/60s. You will then be invited to make your own DRUM-inspired zines, with the help of expert Zinesters and librarians at the Salford Zine Library – no experience needed!
After the workshops, participants will be invited to spend time browsing the collection of zines held at the Clifford Whitworth Library. Participants will be given the option of having their work featured in an online gallery as part of the research project South African Modernism 1880-2020.
Materials and light refreshments will be provided. Recommended for age 12 and above.
This event is part of a series exploring 'Being Human in the Age of Zines', led by the University of Salford.
