a place for zinesters - writers and readers
My name is Peter Bryant, I am a doctoral researcher and DIY artist working on an extensive project on participation in DIY arts and specifically zine making through the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia. Just one final call for zine making participants, as I am about to do the 'fun' part of the research and begin to make some sense of all the great data people have given me.
The aim of the research is to look at how people come to make zines and their personal stories of their first exposure to zines and zine making.
The main aim of the project is to explore the zine making as an art or a media and hopefully help understand how practices such as zines, street art and community radio can survive and continue to flourish in a changing digital and artistic environment.
These interviews will take around 20 minutes and can be conducted by phone or email. f you are a zine maker and are interested in participating please contact me via email - djringfinger (at) gmail (dot) com.
If you are primarily a zine reader, stay tuned, there is part 2 of the reserach, waiting around the corner, just waiting for you. stay tuned :)
thanks and eternal gratitude to those of you who have given your time generously to this project. The first paper will be available and ready in the next few weeks. I will be putting up the link to it here.
