Fear is fun. Okay maybe it isn’t for all of us, but talking about and bonding in a space while we try to explore fear can be! On the 19th of October, Gaysi Family has put together a day of exploration and creation around a theme we love and have been working around for and since our horror zine, Normal. The theme, Fear, divides people. Either you’re like us- first tickets to the first show to every film that can keep us awake and away from our bathroom trips at night, or you put on headphones at the mention of regional horror movie songs *cue Chandramukhi*, there’s almost no in between. Fear In, Fear Out is an event designed for everyone- whether you like to be afraid or don’t. Come join us for a day of understanding why fear plays a role in our lives and the thoughts that surround this profound emotion and the varied narratives around it. Take all these thoughts and pour it into an interactive zine (and take it home!)
One thing is for sure- all this artsy-ness and talk about what scares you (and us) will get your adrenaline pumping- this should be marked as an adventure sport.
Breakup of the session is follows:
1. Understanding “fear” [45 minutes]
This segment will focus on problematizing and deconstructing the concept of fear through a series of brainstorming activities and exercises. The purpose of this segment is to enable participants to think carefully about the concept of fear and to rethink how it applies to their lives.
2. Channeling “fear” [45 minutes]
This segment will focus on modes of representing and channeling fear through a series of examples drawn from the Gaysi Horror Zine “NORMAL”.The purpose of this segment is to enable participants to start thinking about the possible ways of visualising, articulating and working with their fears.
3. Collaborative Zine-Making Workshop [180 minutes or 3 hours]
This final segment will involve participants getting their hands dirty and creating a zine based on their fears and/ ways of combating these.
To make things interesting, every participant will only make their zine until the halfway point. The zines-in-progress will be redistributed at random and will then be completed by another participant. This is to allow participants to look at their fears and those of others through new and fresh perspectives.
