We’re going to be cutting, pasting, writing, and glittering our way into DIY zines and pinback buttons. We’ll share ideas, work both collaboratively and independently and walk away with our very own buttons and zines. Zines are small booklets or pamphlets. They often contain political writing, collages, articles, essays, drawing, poetry and are created for the purpose of cheap and easy self-publishing. Zines have a long history within activist movements in spreading grassroots ideas and centering marginalized voices. Zines are also a lot of fun to make and have endless possibilities!
