Zine-making session: Imagining a new world through digital feminism
‘Zines’ are DIY magazines which can include collages of poems, photos, essays or other kinds of art. One of the strengths of this DIY format is how it embraces and uplifts a diversity of voices. We’re inviting participants to create zines as windows into a new world.
At the start of the workshop we will discuss themes of digital feminism and how it confronts gender inequality, racism, ableism, transphobia and other forms of oppression online.
If possible, please take some time to reflect on (or, if you wish, make some art in response to) the following questions:
1. What does it mean to be a feminist?
2. How can we build safer online spaces for everyone?
3. What does the ideal 2030 look like?
These ideas will be explored in smaller breakout groups where participants will craft the zines digitally and collaboratively.
