About the event
Longtime Wellington Zinefest collaborator Pinky Fang has worked with four local talents to create zines expressing their own unique perspectives on what it's like to be disabled in Aotearoa today. At our launch, our creatives Rimu Bhooi, InkedYoda, Liam Young and Wainui Witika-Park will introduce their new works. We'll have the zines available for purchase, and all the proceeds will go to disabilities advocacy groups.
This project was inspired by an article Pinky wrote for the Office for Disability Issues, where she rejects the idea that being told ‘You don’t look blind!’ is a compliment.
The Disability Zine Project aims to amplify the voices of disabled people and move towards adequate and fair representation, both at Wellington Zinefest and beyond.
This project is made possible with the support of Creative New Zealand.
