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. I had a series of very useful conversations with around 30 zine makers from all over the world in 2011. I have now reached final stage of the project which involves talking to people who are new to zine making (making zines for two years or less). The purpose of the research is to look at how people choose zine making and their personal stories of their first exposure to zines and zine making, with main aim of the project to 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.
So, if you are interested in participating, the interviews for the project will take around 30 minutes of your time. The interviews wills be conducted through email. If you are a zine maker, have been making zines for two years or less and are interested in participating please contact me via email - peterjamesbryant (at) gmail (dot) com.
wish i could participate and had known about the first part of your interviews, but i've been doing zines for 7 years, so i don't qualify. good luck!
thanks! I did the first part of the project in 2011 so it is slowly vanishing in the mists of time :)
