TabloidArtHistory will be discussing their zine, TAH. Created in April 2017 for an exhibition organised by London- based collective Can’t Win Don’t Try, TAH explores the relationship between art history and popular culture through essays, creative writing, interviews, and illustrations.
Ragna Amling is a German writer, arts facilitator and activist. She will lead you through a two hour long Creative Writing Workshop in which you will be given three writing exercises that challenge you to produce poetry and/or flash fiction within a set time.
This workshop is for beginners as well as for established and confident writers. Everyone taking part in the workshop is invited to contribute to a collaborative zine.
Writing materials will be provided.
By Hook or By Crook (2001) chronicles 3 weeks in the life of a handsome, small-town trans man with a nagging messiah-complex. Shy heads to the big city to sink himself into a life of crime and meets Valentine, a deliriously expressive, wise-acre adoptee on a misguided search for his birthmother. The 2 freaky grifters join forces and get up to misadventures in this anti-authoritarian tale of friendship, trust and redemption. Screening alongside Unhung Heroes (2002), a short comedy about five trans guys who scheme to raise over a million dollars for a penis transplant. Lazlo Pearlman, film and performance maker, academic, and director of Unhung Heroes, will join us to chat DIY queer and trans filmmaking.
Transmission (b.1983) is an artist-run space, programmed and led by a volunteer committee. In the last few years, the rotating committee have been engaged in thinking around decolonising the institution, pursuing a curatorial rationale that foregrounds issues of race, gender and sexuality. Recent committee members Camara Taylor, Alex Sarkisian and Andrew Black will present an informal discussion around many of the challenges faced when inheriting an institution with an international pedigree, working for free, and questions of access and visibility in the Glasgow arts community.
Ssssstudio’s workshop will focus on a collaborative large scale typographic poster installation. Participants will generate text (SOMETHING TO COMMUNICATE) and will be advised on DIY modes of production and visual communication techniques to manipulate letterforms. These individual pieces will then be brought together to compose the final work. The outcome will be composed of individual voices but stronger as a whole, asking the audience and participants to think about current sociopolitical and economic debates.
Can you draw? (If the answers no! Thats cool, you don't have to) The whole point is to make your zine and tell your comic story, using stick drawings or your finest illustrations.
This workshop is open to all skill levels for young people ages 14 to 26, exploring the art of making and writing a mini comic/zine from creating characters to drawing it and inking it up for reproduction.
