CITIZEEN #1: How to Make Community

by Katin Imes

Katin and Diane wanted to make a community based zine to help people understand the importance of building community in a neighborhood sense, instead of attempting to do so on the internet. This zine is about the value and challenges involved in meeting and finding common interests and goals with your neighbors. It helps you to identify these things through a quiz and ways to determine different communities that you belong to (groups of people that share common goals) and talks about the economy of personal exchange, barter, and framing positive conversation to communicate facts and experience while avoiding gossip! A crucial resource to combat the scourge of internet gossip!
