University of Glasgow Winter School: Innovative Research Methodologies for Collective Action and Empowerment: Arts-based research/methods for change: Zine-making for revealing, connecting, and transforming inequalities

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Zines are self-published, magazine-like booklets which have historically offered an independent platform of expression for a diversity of underrepresented and marginalised voices, and people with limited economic resources. Furthermore, the process of zine-making has itself been shown to stimulate self-awareness, creative expression, connection and collective action, serving as a pedagogical tool for empowerment and transformation. In recent years, the application of zine-making as a transformative research method has grown in prominence. During the workshop participants will be guided by a series of prompts to make their own zine. A variety of techniques will be explored, including black-out poetry, collaging, and embodied/sensory mapping.
