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:

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.
