SE Ldn Zine Project run by Paper Stories Craft Cafe - for young people aged 14-17yrs
What? The Zine project will work with a small group of young people, to produce a local Gipsy Hill zine which will then be distributed within the area.
‘What are zines?’ you might ask! Zines are a short-form magazine, produced and created by the makers behind the zine itself. They’re a creative way to bring ideas to life. Collage, drawings, short stories, poems, interviews - there’s endless possibilities with the contents of a zine. That’s what makes them such a great form of self expression.
The power of zines comes, too, from their ability to connect communities. As Deborah Rogers, founder of The Cultural Sisters, says: “Zines can help you feel listened to and valued. They can help link people together, or be a voice to the community.”
Young people will produce their very own zine. The course will run as an 8 week programme, with 2 hour workshops once a week. The course will be fully immersive; participants will come up with the name of the zine edition, plan the contents, illustration, design, editing and production on the in-house Risograph machine. They will be guided and supported throughout the process, while given autonomy to own the creative process to create their very own creative masterpiece!
Practising arts and crafts has been shown to improve people’s wellbeing, foster social bonds, and promote better mental health. How great would it be if we can give more people, struggling with their mental health, a space to do just this. This is where the SE Ldn Zine project comes in.
When? The 8 week course begins Monday 9 October, 4pm-6pm
