VIDEO: POC Zine Project member Pati Garcia aka Chula Doula at 2013 L.A. Zine Fest, interview with XGames.com 

[Jump to 1:48 in if you just want Pati’s part]

XGames.com was at L.A. Zine Fest interviewing folks about not only the intersection of skate culture and zine culture, but also about DIY culture in general. 

They stopped by the POCZP table during our panel time, and caught Chula Doula who agreed to be interviewed. We didn’t know this was going to make it into their recap video but it did! Awesome!

This is the message that Alxis, who made this video for XGames.com, sent us after the fest:

I hope you like it, I put all my favorite artist and zines. I think what you all are doing is great, important and inspired work, I hope this turns some young minds on to what you’re doing. 
Thanks,
Alxis

We also hope that through this video more folks from all backgrounds discover POCZP and zines by people of color, more info about zine culture and are inspired to be creators in ways that make sense for them.
