Fanzines are handmade publications of different formats that can be visual or include text; they can be about anything, such as personal stories, subcultures or collections; they can be produced by one person or a group of people at little or no cost. Fanzines are a form of individual expression within a community.
This Fanzines Gallery is a collection of 43 fanzines created by women survivors of trafficking, from across 4 EU countries (Italy, Greece, Spain and Romania). These strong and powerful women were engaged in a creative and healing process guided by art experts and psychologists that resulted in their artwork. They loved creating the fanzines, engaging in a practical way in something they made with their hands, they relaxed and had fun at the same time, they were surprised by how their thoughts and emotions could be transformed into images.
