Creative History Manifesto Zine: Practical

We had such a fabulous time at the Creative History Manifesto zine making class. This was a practical hands-on session that drew to close our series ‘Creative History in the Classroom’. But, we realise that not everyone was able to join us on the day. For this reason we would like to invite you to produce a page for the Creative History Manifesto zine. 

Why would you like to participate? 

  • You use creative methods in the classroom and want to share your thoughts, observations and experiences more widely. 
  • You want to be creative.
  • To disrupt traditional ideas of education writings
  • To help us start a conversation about what the Creative History in the Classroom looks like. 

Please note that this recording has been shortened. At times the recording is poor. 

We would like your zine page to be one frame not a one page zine. 

We are excited to share that The Creative History Manifesto Zine will be published by History, the Journal of the Historical Association. You can read more about History here. Please note that we reserve the right to refuse the inclusion of any work submitted. 

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or queries. You can email Cath Feely at c.feely@derby.ac.uk  or Lucie Matthews-Jones at l.m.matthewsjones@ljmu.ac.uk

What we need: 

  1. A one page zine page that responds to the theme: Creative History in the Classroom 
  2. This needs to be sent to Lucie Matthews-Jones at l.m.matthewsjones@ljmu.ac.uk by 24th March 2023 as a JPeg. 
  3. You will need to fill in this Google document with your biographical information and an explanation of your zine page. Both of these will also be included with your zine page in the Creative History Manifesto zine.
