Learn what it takes to make a zine and create your own with a screen printed cover with OOMK Zine.
This workshop explores the growing mistrust of mainstream news by exploring and subverting formal newspaper conventions and using a cut and paste approach employing more DIY style zine formats to convey information.
In this workshop participants will be encouraged to interrogate ideas surrounding ‘the truth’.
Participants will be presented with a range of printed articles and statistics from different sources exploring the themes beauty and the environment. They will select one story and through a series of activities will be prompted to re-communicate this knowledge using their own creativity and imagination.
