Work history

  • Founder of Artizine UK, a not for profit initiative dedicated to connect communities through zine-making workshops, pop-up exhibitions and engaging events. Since February 2019 we delivered over 30 successful creative ateliers in collaboration with local creatives from Southampton and London area. Artizine gained local recognition in Southampton, affiliating with organisations such as Ladies, Wine and Design, SkateSouthampton, Mu Collective and John Hansard Gallery. Our zine-making workshops focus on cultivating a culture of meaning within groups of individuals and aims to perpetuate notions of self-discovery and abstract components of our human nature into the lives of millennials and not only. Artizine understands the urgent need of substantial spot light for the simple act of getting together, regardless of ethnic, cultural, social and economic background. Ultimately, focusing on the collective rather than the individual, Artizine wants to challenge the dynamics of vulnerability and make a fire where everyone can join around, tell stories and get warm. The Artizine workshops are facilitated on a zero-waste policy and aims to reduce landfill by using only pre-loved and donated art supplies. Our zero waste guideline, explores not only the physicality of reducing material things but also reducing thoughts and creating space for new aspirations. It’s all about muting your mind in order to listen to the deeper song of your own intuition.
