Anarcho-punk zine event in Nottingham on 27th April

In the 1970s, DIY print media met Punk and Anarchism, and the Anarcho-Punk Fanzine was born. The print quality may have been patchy, but the passion and commitment are undeniable. This hands-on workshop explores the politics and the music through zines and a punk soundtrack, courtesy of The Sparrows’ Nest Library and Archive, in corporation with the Notts Zine Library which can be found at:

Nottingham Contemporary, Weekday Cross, Nottingham, NG1 2GB.

Title of event: From the Pistols to the Miners’ Strike: Fanzines of the Anarcho-Punk era, 1976 to 1984

Date: Saturday 27th April 2019.

Notts Zine Library is a permanent collection of self-published materials housed within Nottingham Contemporary’s The Zebrario room as part of a one-year-long residency.

NZL was born from the love of supporting artists and zine makers at the annual Notts Zine Festival. NZL aims to provide a platform for anyone to showcase their zines, whilst archiving them in a comfortable and relaxed environment for readers to enjoy.
