Eco Zine

9 September – 12 November

How do we deepen relationships with local ecologies in a time of profound change? In this project-based exhibition, writer, zine maker and citizen scientist Bastian Fox Phelan invites participants to engage with the natural world through the creation of ephemeral artworks such as zines, posters, soundscapes, and observational experiments. The Project Space itself will become a zine studio, library and space for visitors to create and share stories about the local environment through zine making.

What is an Eco Zine ?

A zine is a hand-made mini magazine that can be photocopied and distributed at a low cost. Zines are a great DIY way to share your ideas and be creative. Zines can contain writing, poetry, illustration, collage, cartoons, or anything that can fit on a page and be photocopied.

An Eco Zine is about anything to do with the environment. It could be a list of animals found in your local area and interesting facts about their lives, or instructions for how to grow a veggie garden, or it could be drawings of a special natural place that you like to visit.

You can be a part of the project

We are asking people to contribute G rated Eco Zine’s to the Library, if you would like to  be a part of the project post your Eco Zine in to Maitland Regional Art Gallery at Po Box 220 Maitland or drop in to the gallery by the 29th of August.  If posting in include your name, age, email address.

We are unable to return zines at the end of the project
