How Zines influence society

Submitted by Srilakshmi (@sriiyer89) on Sep 30, 2018

This is a proposal requesting for someone to speak on this topic. If you’d like to speak, leave a comment.

I love zines. Its a a form of creative expression, and it can entirely be a single individual’s contributionn. Its aking to blog, but only it is more creative and tangible. I often find zines communicating the voice of an activist. It creates a strong impression about a societal perpective. It motivates creative expression on a sensitive topic.

But I often find that it’s reach is limited to pop-ups. But that’s ok. Pop-up evennts invite people from various backgrounds. So these provocative zines are able to reach the common people as well.

With it’s provocative character, and pretty broad reach, I wonder how such zines channge one’s perpectives, and influence one’s lifestyles. I wonder how further can zines reach, and how can we use zines for deeper penetrationn of covnersations arounnd sensitive/taboo topics.


  1. What are zines
  2. History of zine creations & its various usage
  3. Examples for various zine artists in India
  4. What do they have to say about zines
  5. What does the future of zines look like
