Zines! DIY! Revolution! Activity book! - Shameless Magazine at Nuit Blanche
Shameless Editorial Director Sheila, and Arts Editor Ronak are working alongside two super rad teens Kaya and Sahlla (the mastermind behind the Fight Like A Girl zine) to craft together a zine activity book on DIY interactive guides to revolution. We have one hour to make it and would love for you to come by and tell us your thoughts, opinions, and what revolution means to you.
Tweet us at @shamelessmag use the hashtags #DIYrevNB #12hrzinemachine to let us know what revolution means to you and what you’d like to see in the zine!
Also, make sure to check out the 12 Hr. Zine Machine website throughout the night to download the finished zines being made throughout the night!
The only thing 12 Hr. Zine Machine participants can make ahead of time is the zine cover. This is ours!
More info on the event:
Drop by the Gladstone Hotel and behold the vibrant and bustling “12 HR Zine Machine” as ten featured Toronto artist groups are challenged to create a handmade zine art book every hour, all night long!
Join the zine machine by writing your suggestions on a large “Idea Board” in the workroom or tweeting them to @maddycollective. Nuit Blanche audience members are also invited to sit with the zine artists and contribute their own drawings and writings.
Free limited edition copies of each hour’s unique zine will be given out to Nuit Blanche guests. The books will also be uploaded online and downloadable throughout the night on our project website at: www.12hrzinemachine.com.
