Our mission statement:

“Words & Guitars is a celebration of DIY culture, punk and feminist art, and music. We will explore the lasting impact and potential of art, zines and zine culture and provide a platform for musicians who are inspired by and committed to the DIY ethos. Words and Guitars will foster an open and accessible community of respect and mutual admiration, and harness the power of hand-made, independent art and music”
