The 2 zines were published as part of ongoing work to address disparities in experience and attainment for international students and students of colour.
They are aimed at staff and students, as a tool to raise awareness and open up conversations that deepen creative and pedagogic practices.
The story behind the zines
This podcast tells the story of the 2 Decolonising the Arts Curriculum zines. Both zines make space for the expression of different perspectives and approaches to decolonisation. They contain a wide variety of media, from the literary to the visual.

Print copies of the zines are available to staff and students via all UAL Libraries. During 2018-2020 over 10,000 print copies were distributed across UAL College sites.
The project has served as a catalyst for further decolonising projects at the University and beyond.
The team invite you to share your perspectives on, and examples of, decolonising the arts curriculum.
