The Riot Grrrl Project: The Anecdotal History of Riot Grrrl
because we support the continuation of riot grrrl art.
because we=us=the riot grrrls can sit back and enjoy the revival, or we can take part in it.
because we want to participate in keeping fanzine culture alive and thriving.
because we want an outlet to archive our experiences with riot grrrl.
the riot grrrl project is a traveling book in which former and current riot grrrls can document their memories and experiences with the movement. each recipient will be delegated a few pages to fill with stories, pictures and artwork and consistent with fanzine culture can also scrapbook, cut, paste, type and photograph. goals of this project include sharing the book at riot grrrl events, shows and galleries, archival with other riot grrrl memoribilia and publication.
why snail mail?
it is a way for the project to retain the original essence of riot grrrl.
it is a rejection to the over-saturation of technology and online media that has flooded our society today.
most importantly, it provides each contributor with the opportunity to read the previous entries, to remember, to relive, to imagine, and to be inspired.
