Are you a LGBTQQIAP+ young person (aged 13 to 18) interested in art, writing, and DIY culture?

In celebration of the exhibition The Sentiment of Flowers, Gus Fisher Gallery invites rainbow youth and their allies to an introductory workshop on queer zine-making. Bring your friends and make some new ones, all while exploring the creative world of queer self-publishing.

Together we will learn about the history of zines in queer and other radical movements and participate in fun and easy bookmaking activities. Go home with your own personal mini-zine and help contribute to a group zine in just three hours! No experience or supplies are needed for this workshop, but feel free to bring your poetry, sketchbooks, and creative ideas with you.

Please bring something for you to eat and drink during our breaks from zine-making.

Presented by Kim Snider (she/her) a teacher and obsessive zine-collector from Toronto, Canada, where she teaches drama, creative writing, and gender studies. She recently moved to Tāmaki Makaurau to begin her PhD, which focuses on the role of the arts in supporting queer and trans youth.

Kindly supported by Rule Foundation.
