On Sunday 29 September 2019 we held our inaugural Cheer Up Love Zine Fair at EartH Hackney.
We invited some of our favourite radical DIY makers to share the space with us. They were: Cumrades, Du Blonde, Fem Zine, FML Comics, Girls About Peckham, Grrrl in Print, Sex+, Sweet Thang, Thiiird. The event was set to the funky stylings of DJ Pollyanna.
As is important with all the spaces we create, we wanted a space to make and reflect, so we asked visitors to take some time out responding to the following provocations through cutting, sticking, writing and drawing:
How do you channel your anger?
What makes you feel powerful?
How can you use your passion to make a difference?
And so was born our ANGER. PASSION. POWER digital zine, made up of all the inspiring responses from this drop-in creative workshop.
