You’re the Voice: Zine Making with Ladies of Leisure

Calling all TEENS: Squeeze some zine making into your last week of summer holidays with Melbourne-based creative collective, Ladies of Leisure (LOL).

This workshop encourages young people to use their voices for positive change by making a Zine. This workshop is $10 and suitable for ages 13-17 years. 

LOL will facilitate a conversation based on Sarah Goffmann’s work in our current exhibition 'Unfinished Business', focusing on personal politics and how those issues affect workshop participants, and the world around them.

Participants will then create their own collaged artwork responding to a belief or message they wish to support. These artworks will then be photocopied and collated into their very own zine to take home.

This workshop is part of our Summer Workshops — a series of art making workshops for all ages from 23–25 January. Click here to see all events:https://acca.melbourne/series/summer-workshop-series
