Lifelong wellbeing theme

What’s on offer?

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

What’s it about?
