Join us for a zine-making session! There’ll be free zine materials, original zine templates, lots of snacks, and most of all—a good time with good company!

Welcome to “Zineland: It’s a Zine World, After All!”, the fourth year Capstone Project by students from Western University’s School for Advanced Studies in the Arts and Humanities (SASAH). As a group of thirteen artists, our class has created an exhibition which aims to represent the culmination of our learning and development over the past four years.
SASAH is an interdisciplinary program with a focus on diversity, community, and learning with humanity. Students complete SASAH alongside a second major of their choice, resulting in a wide range of interests and knowledge within our community. Our diverse areas of study, combined with a passion for the arts, has given rise to a tightly knit collective full of distinct talents.
As a cohort, we felt this unique togetherness was best represented through a collection of handmade zines. We see ourselves as a “ziney” community—a patchwork of personal insights, arts, and culture.
We invite you to flip through our zines and explore. Think about what your own zine might be about. What would it look like? How would it represent you? We believe this exhibition has the power to spark conversation, foster community, and showcase the diversity of thought and experience that exists within our SASAH cohort.
Participating artists: Bridget Leslie, Bridget Koza, Sophie Wu, Finn Rose, Rachael Jensen, Kristyna Reedon, Celine Tsang, Joyce Leung, Shai Butler, Matthew Dawkins, Kirat Walia, Angelina Havaris, Tiffany Lin
