Zines have an extensive history as a medium of choice for marginalized voices, outcasts, and countercultures. The format—unencumbered by rules relating to form, function, or purpose—allows makers to share their voices without feeling they can’t afford it or that there isn’t an audience for their stories and to find the approach that best expresses their unique self. In this hands-on workshop, SF Zine Fest artists will teach some zine construction basics of and share some approaches for telling your unique story in zine form.

Founded in 2001, San Francisco Zine Fest seeks to advance the do-it-yourself ethos by fostering community throughout the Bay Area. In our annual festival and its accompanying panels and workshops, we celebrate and support independent writers, artists and creators, allowing them to share their work with an ever-growing audience in exhibitions and public events. San Francisco Zine Fest is a member of the Intersection Incubator, a program of Intersection for the Arts.

This program is presented in conjunction with Self, Made.
