Welcome, creative kittens, to The Patchwork Paper.
The Patchwork Paper is the bastard child of Poda Poda, an arts and activism ‘zine we made and loved when we were back at Sussex University.
The Patchwork Paper has found her feet in the big city, and has knitted a patchwork quilt of truly original poetry, prose and visual culture for everyone to get involved with. In the current economic climate, the arts have taken a back seat. So here in your hand is a nugget of Art Activism:
We still need to express ourselves, whether the government will fund us our not. Our aim is to provide a free platform for art and literature, funded only by CRAFTY, our unique night of mystery and miscellany.
No monetary exchange
Just your creative expression.
We will be back this winter with a bumper issue that you’ll be able to find for free in all the small, independent art spaces, bars and cafés from Hackney to Peckham to Brixton to Camden.
With love, thanks
Special thanks to the residents of 59 Wallis Rd, for making CRAFTY possible.
