- a low-budget DIY feminist media, music and art production project, currently based in Ghent, Belgium
- creating and publishing zines, pamphlets, comix, tapes, buttons, crafts and more since 2001
ECHO was started by me (“Zina”). I use the project to create and self-publish my zines, comix and pamphlets, and sometimes music, spoken word, artwork and crafts. I’d like to encourage others to make zines too and contribute to a worldwide feminist DIY zine culture.
Apart from presenting my own zines, I use this blog to report on feminist zine-related news – especially from Belgium, write zine reviews and share articles about DIY feminist zine culture. It is my dream to see a feminist zine scene grow and bloom in Belgium [it’s starting!!]. Let me know if you make feminist zines too or if you’re a zine-maker from Belgium!
Sometimes I (help) organise zine activities such as Zine Fest Gent, Zine Café (together with FEL) and 24 Hour Zine Thing@Ghent or gives workshops to teach and inspire others to start their own zines.
