Link to hosted file: Creatures Audiozine 02 - Community Of Practices [welcome to add comment to timeline via a SoundCloud account]


This audiozine pastes together conversation around organisational labour, friendships and motivation, changing disciplines within Pixelache with the recent years, festival 2019, safer space ambitions, things left behind, and a need to collectively imagine future desires. Featured objects include our internal 'Pixel' system for compensating associational work by members, a 3D printer, a bed-side artwork and safe space guidelines.
