Some visual notes made from ‘International Activism‘ an event I attended recently in Bradford, the first public event hosted by the new Speakers’ Corner Collective ‘a social space co-run by women and young girls from Bradford and it’s surrounding areas’.
I’m looking for ways to both reflect on, and document the words I hear from people who are trying to make change in a very difficult world. Rather than leave the words I wrote down from these inspiring women in my notebook, where only I see them, I have made them into a collage in a sketchbook, and am sharing them in the hope they inspire others as much as they did me, and help in a small way to help build the solidarity we need to in these incredibly challenging times.
How Do We Get Through This? your contribution needed for collaborative zine
I’m putting together a zine (a hand-made magazine) of collected thoughts/ideas/plans about how we survive and resist through the next 5 years of Tory government.
Contributions to the zine can be in words/images, or a combination of both. It can be just a few words, a sentence, or as long as you want – whatever and however you might like to share. You can email your response to me at Jeanmariemcewan@gmail.com
The deadline for contributions is 29th May. I will make and distribute as many copies of the zine as possible for free, get them out as widely as possible, and get a copy to everyone who contributes. The print zine will be photocopied in black and white, and an e – zine will also be published online to view and download.
