Realign The Margins: AAAH Zine Club was a DIY cut-n-paste, writing, drawing and self-publishing studio held on-site at Massey University Library. Featuring an Asian New Zealand library display, exhibition, free lunchtime talk with Ya-wen Ho& others, and two zine-making workshops lead byHelen Yeung(Migrant Zine Collective).
The open-access workshops focused on the nuances of Asian New Zealand identity in context with cultural experiences of Māori, Pakeha and Pasifika peoples. These workshops aimed to provide encounters for students and others with a range of skill and knowledge levels, to come together to participate in cross-cultural conversations, which developed through art, design (making) and writing processes, and resolve in personal and collaborative hand-made print publications. The work produced from these workshops was then featured in the library exhibition and at Te Papa as part of the AAAH Symposium weekend.
