'Zine' = a DIY, self-published magazine

What will your town look like in 50 years, or 100? Join us for a day of zine-making and publish your visions for the future of Loughborough!

With poet and digital artist Nathan Jones and illustrator Sam Skinner from arts collective Mercy, imagine what Loughborough will be like in the year 2288. Where do people live? How do they get around? What does the town look like? Then, use writing, drawing, and photomontage to imagine how real locations in the town centre would look and function in a cultural tourist guide for the future

Will the future of Loughborough be marvellous or monstrous? You decide…

This event is free to attend and all materials will be provided. It is designed for young people aged 12-15 and parents are welcome to accompany, but will not need a ticket to do so.

The Loogabaroogarian's Guide to the Future represents a collaboration between Market Town and the Loogabarooga Festival. It is one of a number of workshops/seminars that are being organised as part of the current Market Town programme.  They are intended to further investigate the themes explored in the main commissions, and to further engage the local community in the debate about the future of Loughborough. The Loogabarooga Festival is an exciting new annual event celebrating illustrated children's literature. Held in Loughborough from 22nd - 26th October 2015, the festival will build on the town's history as the original producer of the world-famous Ladybird Books.
