Workshop: Celebrating Queerness! A zine-making workshop with Aghh! Zine


Part of The Coast is Queer 2023.


In this 2-hour workshop, we will explore the process of zine-making as an accessible tool to unleash our creativity, celebrate queerness and take charge of our own narratives.

Aghh! Zine will support you throughout your zine-making journey showing you how to create a zine and using some prompts relating to the theme “Celebrating Queerness” to help you get started.

Zines have a long history of activism, counter-culture and community. We welcome you to this safe space to meet other like-minded people and have a Queer Joy collective moment. A space where we can share our experiences, explore different subjects and celebrate ourselves and others.
