Now, with the new work ahead, DK want to explore zinemaking more than we have in the past. Collaboratively. We want to really give this time, so people can see that a short-form publication made together with people in a collaborative manner can teach us things about how to listen, how to engage deeply, how to co-create, how to invite the new, the spontaneous, and make a thing that is more than just a bunch of individual pages stapled together… But a unified, cohesive work. ‘I want to grow this up a bit,’ says A. Spaice. ‘Professionally typeset things. Hire translators. Commission artists. Print on nice paper. Send anthologies around to supporters.
‘I’m ready to come back and share what I’ve learned. With others. Who also want to play. Learn, share. Make, do. Zines are a way, for me, to illustrate the how of trying something new, on the spot, quickly, prototyping, but also, voila! The magic moment. And you know how much I love that.’
