ZIG/ZAG/ZINES is a brand new pop-up zine library featuring zines* related to neurodiversity, disability, and mental health.
This exciting new collection, which includes lots of handmade/printed zines made by various independent creators from around the world, will be on display at Coleford Library throughout March 2024 as part of the FOD Fringe Festival.
*Zines (pronounced “zeens”) are independently produced, low/no-cost DIY publications. They can be about any subject and created in any style, typically within a format that allows fast, simple reproduction and small-scale distribution. They may be informative, creative, and/or subversive, and are often used by people from socially marginalised groups and communities to record and share ideas and stories.
ZIG/ZAG/ZINES is part of the ZIG/ZAG Project, a neurodivergent-led, collaborative, non-profit organisation that exists to encourage curiosity, creativity, and connection around neurodiversity.
Please note: Some of the Zines in the collection deal with adult themes such as sex, self-harm and sadness/distress.
