Join Lu Williams at TOMA Project Space for a zine making workshop to celebrate Southend Pride.
This is a free event. No ticket required - just come along anytime from 1-3pm!
Lu Williams will be hosting a special zine making workshop during the Southend Pride march to coincide with the exhibition Southend’s Twilight Worlds. Participants will be encouraged to use the exhibition as inspiration for their zine.
Zine making is a versatile process that can pull together ideas, encourage collaboration, function as a method of self care and act as a vehicle for accessibility.
Materials are provided during the workshop, however it is possible for participants to work with their own materials if they wish to bring them, such as their own artwork or writing.

Lu is interested in social history, accessibility, labour, DIY culture, protest and explores this through a personal experience of queerness and working-class culture.
