ZINE (n): pronounced “zeen” – A zine is a self-published, non-commercial print-work that is typically produced in small, limited batches.
Zines are created and bound in many DIY ways, but traditionally editions are easily reproduced—often by crafting an original “master flat,” and then photocopying, folding, and stapling the pages into simple pamphlets. Zines may also be sewn, taped, glued—or even exist in unbound and other non-folio formats. The main rule is that there are no rules

Stories of Home explores individual and collective experiences of belonging and home. Community members from across Tasmania were invited to share their own personal memories of home/homeland/hometown and what feeling at home means to them. Sharifah Emalia Al-Gadrie responded to these individual memories, creating artworks which incorporates the words of community members and highlighting evocative imagery from their words. Hung on the walls of the Devonport Regional gallery, the individual works are split and displayed together with other artworks, the voices merging together and creating a collective story of home.

An interactive wall of mini zines invites audiences to add their own memories of home and build on the collective story.
