Lockdown Zine


Submissions are now open for Hume Library’s creative Lockdown Zine. The Youth of Hume will be able to submit any artistic projects they’ve been working on to be a part of our first ever online creative zine, from painting, photography, writing to knitting – it’s all accepted to show a collective creative thought of how the we have been dealing with this global pandemic.

By the end of this project, we will have a published magazine, collecting the work and details of the youth of Hume, which will be a great creative snapshot into this crazy time. There will be physical copies available to applicants, as well as physical copies held at each of the library branches, in order for the general public to browse through the amazing works.

To submit your artistic project fill out the Lockdown Zine online form

Keep your eyes on the Hume Libraries Facebook page for some ideas of projects.
