Glasgow Zine Library is a self-publishing library and community arts space located in Govanhill on the south side of Glasgow. We aim to advance the arts, heritage and cultural sector through promoting self-publication as a means for artistic, community and personal expression. We have a growing archive of self-published works, with around 1000 zines currently in the collection. We run a year-round programme of educational events and our annual festival, Glasgow Zine Fest.
The coming year marks an exciting period of growth and consolidation for the organisation. Our events programme will be shaped around three themes: The Stories We Tell, Between Creativity and Wellness, and Opening the Gate: Making Theory Accessible, offering our audiences an opportunity to develop and nurture themselves and their creative practice. We will begin to offer intermediate and advanced learning opportunities in addition to our existing beginners offer. We will be expanding our Young Producers Programme for 14-18 year olds and creating a follow-on Emerging Programmers initiative for adults. We will be focusing on building stronger community partnerships and developing a more financially sustainable model. As we begin to reopen the library, following Covid-19 closures, we will be broadening its use, doing more to bring the collection to life and make zine-making and self-publishing more accessible.
