Join Coin-Operated Press and Michael Gratzke for this special zine-making workshop. As part of a group you can address the themes of personal breakdowns, break-ups and breakthroughs in whatever ways they matter to you or your loved ones. Discover zine making as a tool for reflection and explore the ways in which to negotiate disclosure and the safe spaces provided by fictionalisation. The workshop will touch on a variety of topics including LGBTQ+ experiences and social issues.
There will also be a chance to learn about the environmental benefits of re-making with everyday objects. As a low-tech medium, all you need are some old magazines and newspapers to make a zine — which will be supplied at the workshop.
A selection of the zines produced during the workshop will form a pop-up zine library to be showcased throughout the Being Human festival and on social media (with your permission).
This event is part of the University of Dundee's Festival Hub.
