Radical Zine Series Vol 2



Come long to the launch of  Volume 2 of our "Radical Zine Series" on 1 May 2021 - radical political texts, newly illustrated by local artists, made in collaboration with Wellington Zinefest,  

Radical Zine Series is a kaupapa which invites local creatives to redesign radical zines from the Freedom Shop collection. The project aims to both provide paid work for artists and make the important ideas contained within the zines more accessible through design.

Free kai and drinks. Open to all. This event happens to fall on the same date as the Freedom Shop's 26th Birthday! So you're welcome to stay for a drink with us after the launch.


'The Terror of the Dawn Raids' by Melani Anae, re-designed by Darcy Woods.

'Burning Women' by Lady Stardust, re-designed by Cosmo Bones.

'Eternal War on the Hitler Youth', re-designed by Zoe Hannay.

'Dare to be a Daniel!' by Wilf McCartney, re-designed by Hannah Salmon.


Saturday, 1 May 2021 at the Freedom Shop, inside Opportunity for Animals, 162 Riddiford St, Newtown.

Doors open at 5:30pm. Come grab a drink with us before the launch proper starts at 6:00pm.
