Who we are

The Collective Narrative Project is a movement organized by a coalition of Masters of Social Work students at the University of Washington who are committed to raising awareness around social justice issues. We are taking action to disrupt and challenge dominant social narratives by empowering the voices of oppressed and marginalized groups through creative, collective action in the form of a ‘zine. Our vision is to resist the reiteration of “single stories” that represent center on normative social groups while rendering other groups and identities invisible. We want to introduce all stories to compose a new and open narrative of ourselves, groups, communities, and society.

What is a ‘zine (/ˈziːn/)?

A ‘zine is a small-scale circulation of self-published works of original or gathered texts, artwork, and images usually reproduced by photocopier. Historically, and with the invention of the printing press, dissidents and marginalized citizens have published their own opinions in the form of leaflets and pamphlets. We would like to continue this tradition of grass-roots social activism through self-published, freely distributed literature.

The CNP ‘Zine on Invisible Disabilities

With our first, upcoming issue we are creating a publication that focuses on invisible or unseen disabilities, offering multiple views and voices on this topic. We are also interested in the ways in which other identities intersect with disability. Participation by those who do not identify as disabled is also encouraged. ‘Zine submissions can take the form of visual arts, essays, fiction, comics etc. Anything that can be scanned or photographed and sent as an email attachment is valid. Hard copies can be submitted to the D Center (location).
Help us showcase the stories of individuals and groups from a myriad of identities, intersections, backgrounds, and experiences by being part of this inclusive narrative of our diverse community.
