About Making Decolonial Travel Zines

This is a closed workshop for BIPOC only

Travel guides have a history of catering to a tourist that’s presumably monied, white, and Western by default, often leading them to sites of coloniality and away from what may be deemed “inauthentic” or “dangerous” to their gaze, but the story of place should be told by their people. In the hands of BIPOC, non-traditional travel guides can make space for reimaginings of migration and reclamations of cartography from the grips of settler colonialism in fresh, creative, and just ways.

In this online Zoom session, travel writer Bani Amor will lead BIPOC in choosing a home place, sourcing information and media on it, and creating non-invitational guides through them in a classic DIY zine format. Participants will leave with digital copies of the collaborative product and create a physical one that will live in the Glasgow Zine Library.

Please use our Google Drive folder for inspiration and to upload media before we start class.
