Young Arnolfini have been busily preparing for the upcoming launch of our new arts magazine (or ‘Zine’.) The first issue will be spread around various arts venues in Bristol, but to get your copy first, head down to the Parlour Show Rooms on College Green on Friday 5th or Saturday 6th July to join us for our official launch party.
Our followers may have noticed that there has been a lack of regular content on the blog for the past few weeks. This is due to our preparations in writing and editing the zine to the best of our ability. Whilst some of us were scurrying around Bristol to various events, such as the first Jump Cut Film Festival, others have painted and illustrated pieces especially for the publication, with one collage exploring the apprehensive move from secondary school to college. Outside of Bristol, we have been in touch with musician Daniel O’ Sullivan and photographer Jak Flash.
Performing at the launch will be rap artist and YA member Maz Shar with Deep, Woodfield and Jon Basker. There will be refreshments and light drinks available. Saturday will feature a performance from the Whitechapel young peoples group Duchamp & Sons.
Here are some snippets from Issue #1, ‘Debut’ (click to enlarge):
