What is a zine? A zine, short for magazine, is a graphic tour of a story published and produced by hand. It is a cheaper version, but very similar to a handmade book, which has all the features available to send a message.
We are all made of stories that are waiting to be told, this workshop provides you with the space and knowledge to tell your own story in the way you would like to tell it, while you are guided by professionals in the sector, meet new people, listen to their stories and create a new space for memories and ideas.

Carlos Alba offers the participants of his workshop The Strangers Zine the opportunity of realising and taking home their own “zine”: a cheaper version of a magazine that has all the available characteristics to send a message. Directed at all kinds of public, from children and their parents to teenagers and adults, the workshop has the objective of teaching the participants how to tell their own story and listen to that of the other, creating a new space for memories and ideas. He will explain the techniques used by the professionals together with the advantages of each method, so that the public can find new channels of expression and creative exchange.
