Whitley Bay Zine Collective
Melody Sproates
Zine launch December 2022

ArtHouses and Zinester Mel Sproates are joining creative forces once again to work on an exciting Zine collaboration, reconnecting with people who have been involved in ArtHouses projects this year - artists, residents, participants in the events - to make a zine together.

Mel will be leading a series of three creative workshops to explore themes of interconnection in Whitley Bay - the ways we relate to our homes, the places we live, our art and each other. Participants in these workshops with Mel will be looking at examples of zines, discussing ideas around ecologies of Whitley Bay, creative activism and what is means to host an artwork, and working collaboratively through creative writing and collage.

Watch this space for details of the zine launch in December.
