report on Canzine and more from Hal

Hi everyone out there, Hal Niedzviecki here. This week we're going to talk about how pop culture works and why you should make your own movies, tv shows, songs, magazines and more.

Yesterday my magazine broken pencil put on our annual festival Canzine, the festival of underground culture, and it was a really great reminder of how much amazing creativity is out there. Hundreds of zines (independent mini-magazines), all day independent short film, comics, buttons, homemade clothing and more.

Next year, I want to see your work at Canzine too! So, if you have any questions about the ideas in my book The Big Book of Pop Culture: A How To Guide for Young Artists, feel free to ask. I'm here to talk to you about how pop culture works in our society and how to approach the not-as-big-as-you-think task of making your own stuff!
