Creating our own culture

A discussion group with zinesters Melanie (Colouring Outside The Lines), Patrick (Ricochet!
Ricochet!), Em (The World’s A Mess & You’re My Only Cure), and Debi (Self-Publishing and Empowerment)
talking about taking the DIY ethos of zine-making and applying it to becoming creative producers and creative consumers.

They will discuss:


* Organising gig and spoken word tours


* Setting up independent gallery spaces


* Forming bands


* Launching own publishing houses


* DIY Book publishing


* Exhibiting art communally



Come and hear how and why they are creating their own cultural environments/cultures/worlds, and discuss how you could too. Feel free
to bring
examples of what you’re up to,

and/or ideas, plans, and projects that you’d like to put out in to the
world


Artist Trading Cards!

Art you can put in your pocket.

Make and trade artist trading cards (pieces of art the same size as baseball or Pokemon cards). All you need to bring is yourself! We’ll be providing
glue, scissors, cardboard, pens etc. If you feel like it

bring your own magazines, newspapers and crafty stuff to use!

guardian) and help us and our friends make drawings for a special issue of Melonfarmer Zine.
