7pm FORUM PANEL DISCUSSION
Curator Adele Sliuzas will facilitate a Forum panel discussion featuring zine makers Lucy Thomas, Bridget Fahey, Chiranjika Grasby, Joel van der Knapp, and Rujing Zhou. The forum will build a critical, contextual and accessible framework with which to read Zine making practices. We will explore the complexities of zine making as well as some of the personal and political narratives told through independent and DIY publishing.
8pm THE PUNK SINGER DOCUMENTARY FILM
The Punk Singer is a documentary about feminist singer Kathleen Hanna who fronted the bands Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, and who was a central figure in the riot grrrl movement. Hanna has been an inspiration for many DIY zinesters, showing how self-expression and making your own art can change a scene. Hanna’s practice was also fundamental in Lucy Thomas’s first foray into zine making.
