Zine Project!

There is an amazing range of campaigning/community/creative grassroots groups in Derby, and we’re really excited about bringing them all together in one booklet to raise awareness, inspire people, and celebrate people’s achievements.

This small magazine (or ‘zine’) will have a page per group – what they’ve done in 2017, plans for 2018, and support they would like. We have an online entry form with 10 questions – Wed 17 Jan is the deadline for group entries. You can also copy and paste it into a document so you can work on it on paper with your group. But let us know now if your group wants to take part! And please let other groups know.

We also need help to make the zine inclusive, put it together and distribute it – if you can help in any way, we’d love to hear from you. Please Contact Us saying which role(s) you’re interested in:

reaching new groups
distribution (places and people)
cutting n pasting / drawing / design
website design
layout on computer
editorial team
fundraising for printing
other – please say what!

Finally, we are being supported by the wonderful Sound Bites Derby, who will act as a city-centre collection point for fundraising for the printing costs – – so groups and individuals can drop in donations to the collection tins on the counter at Sound Bites wholefood shop on the Morledge from January-March. The more copies we can print, the more people will hear about all these amazing groups.

We look forward to hearing from anyone about this project, and seeing it come into being, ready for distribution in Feb/March 2018!
