Sarah Rene (Native Punx Unite)

We are all women zinesters of colour. We all collect stories based around PoC/identity. We are all focussed on the personal, economic, social and political struggles of PoC, and have somehow centred it around a punk identity or ethos.

CHICAGO ZINE FEST

1:30-2.30pm

Zines, Punk, & Reclamation: A Discussion for People of Color

How are zines an aid in the reclamation of our cultural and expressive practices, histories and identities as people of color, both in and out of punk cultures? What forms do those acts of reclamation take? How do we hold cultural and chosen communities together, or not? How do we navigate the clashes and the connections between them?

This open discussion will be facilitated by Osa Atoe of Shotgun Seamstress zine. Also present will be Nyky Gomez (Brown Recluse Distro), Yumii Okafor (Slash Em Up zine), Mimi Nguyen (Race Riot, Slander zines), Suzy X (Malcriada, Mallgoth Chronicles zines) and Anna Vo (Fix My Head zine).
