Mini Zine Mania!

Mini zines are a powerful medium for social change and self-expression. With Mini Zine Mania! the Emily Taylor Center is offering three Make Mini Zines! Workshop Series throughout the fall semester, including Mini Zine Mondays at ECM, Make Mini Zines! on Daisy Hill, and Queer Zine Nights (with the KU Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity). Participants in the our Make Mini Zines! Workshops learn how to creatively communicate their ideas and experiences by making their own mini zine. These workshops are meant to promote self-authorship and self-definition, while also creating an archive of zines that will offer readers with access to a range of perspectives and multiple ways of knowing. 

FACEBOOK GROUP (Facebook Event page)

In this online community, we explore the power of zine culture and zine-making. This Facebook Group is sponsored by the the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity at the University of Kansas and complements our Make Mini Zines! Workshops, Monthly Mini Zine Mondays Series, Make Mini Zines! on Daisy Hill, and Queer Zine Nights (with the KU Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity).

QUEER ZINE NIGHTS 
Queer and trans students learn how to communicate creatively using a medium – mini zines – with a long history of uplifting queer and trans voices. The purpose of this program is to provide students with a sense of mattering and a feeling of belonging in a supportive, identity-based community, while also encouraging self-authorship and self-definition. In a society that silences and marginalizes queer and trans voices, an archive of LGBTQIA+ authored mini zines gives readers access to and respect for a range of perspectives that remain largely unheard on our campus.
