On this episode, I talk with Taleen Kali and Julia Gibson of Dum Dum Zine is a collective that publishes experimental art-lit zines, and features interviews, flash fiction, photo essays, and serialized radio plays on their website. From summer goths to Hasselblads to how bizarre Facebook marketing is, we cover all the important topics. It’s great!!
Zines Are Us is a FREE zine event at the University Art Museum (UAM) at CSU Long Beach featuring a conversation with an awesome group of diverse and creative zine artists, along with a zine making workshop and other artsy bonus activities. We talk with Amanda Fruta from the UAM about the event and Sophia Zarders, one of the featured artists. Hope to see y’all at Zines Are Us on July 28 from 11am – 3pm!!
