This workshop explores how to tell stories through zine-making. Zines are little, self-published booklets that amplify the voices of those at the margins. As zine-makers, we become caretakers: sharing tips, tools, dreams and demands-- making recipes for resistance as we go
Story telling through Zine-making.
Tamara Hart (she/they) is an anthropologist based in London. Their research explores visual and material narratives in mental health structures, with a focus on peer support practices. In their workshops, they use creative methods to examine visual caretaking – the crafting of self-published material to document and care for community members. Their research centres on psychiatric archives and queer zine-making practices.
They recently edited the ESRC-funded zine publication Transformation in Mental Healthcare: An Anthropological Study of Peer Supported Open-Dialogue.
They are also a contributing editor for the LGBTQI+ artist support network and curatorial platform Queerdirect.
