I’m doing something a little bit different today because I’d like to feature a couple of zine community crowdfunding projects. If we don’t support each other, who will?
There’s only 24 hours left, at the time I’m posting this, and Pozible is an all or nothing crowdfunding site. They’re so close!
ZICS is a not-for-profit collective of passionate volunteers dedicated to connecting local zine and indie comic creators with the wider public. We strive to start inclusive conversations, collaborate on ideas, and share the art forms that we love.
We’ve been working hard since March to make this year the biggest ZICS yet, and now we need your help. As a not-for-profit group, we rely on your generosity to make this event happen. That’s where the Pozible campaign comes in. By pledging just five dollars of your hard-earned cash, you’ll be supporting Brisbane’s largest gathering of zine and indie comic enthusiasts.
Our project is centred around multi-media artist Ana Hine, as she navigates making and distributing her feminist arts zine Artificial Womb around Scotland.
It will explore her experience of dropping out of the mainstream media, due to work-related stress, depression and anxiety, and the role zines are having in her recovery.
The film will touch on:
zines and DIY culture
feminist arts scenes
mental health & employability
We would like to showcase the work of other zine makers who have had similar experiences with mental ill-health. If you’d like to be featured (and are within driving distance of Glasgow and/or Dundee) get in touch!
