a place for zinesters - writers and readers
The Shrieking Violet turns three at the start of August, so come and celebrate the fanzine's birthday at Manchester's pop-up canalside Olympic village.
Atelier[zero] was designed by students from Manchester School of Architecture and Paris's École Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris in collaboration with the Office for Subversive Architecture. Redefining the concept of the Olympic village, it features both artworks and attractions like a ball pool, rowing boats and a hammock.
Get your free copy of issue 19, the biggest and best yet, eat some purple cake/Parma Violets, dive into the ball pool and test your rowing skills by taking a boat out onto the canal basin.
