This class we are makin’ a ‘zine!

The Edmonton Zine Fair 5 is coming up fast on Saturday, June 11 at the Sewing Machine Factory. And we’re going to release The History of Punk Fanzine #3 there!

But first we have to put it together. That’s what this class is for! Bring whatever you’d like to contribute, and classmate David Prodan will lead us in our “putting a zine together” workshop!

Ideas on contributions:
-a review of a local show, album, or visual art.
– an essay on something Edmonton or punk related.
– photos.
– poetry, prose, anything creative really.
– interviews, scene reports, the sky is the limit!

The class will start with a short lecture on the history of punk ‘zines, and then we will drive right into the workshop!

And yes, THERE WILL BE VEGAN SNACKS! Feel free to bring more to share!

In this class we are stayin’ local!

Jennifer Messelink, who recently completed her MA on the Edmonton punk community, will present on her thesis: “Documenting a Punk Music Scene in Edmonton, Alberta 1979-1985: Place, Legitimacy, and Belonging Articulated Through Mainstream and Independent Media.”

Corey Hamilton, an artist who organized shows in Edmonton in the early 1990s, will discuss the scene through 21 shows he participated in starting in 1986.

Following the two amazing presentations, we’ll discuss other local issues, and brainstorm ideas for our fanzine we’ll be putting together in May’s class for Edmonton Zine Fair 5!

And if you have any ideas for readings or the playlist, comment below!

Punk stalwart Corey Hamilton joined the show and brought all kinds of music on cassettes, vinyl, and CDs! Unfortunately, there were no 8 tracks, but the selection of local music, scientists and theologians agree, was unparalleled!
