20/60 – Heidi Minx
A positive punk rock force to be reckoned with Heidi Minx is taking a d.i.y. approach to life to another level with her work for her not-for-profit Built On Respect. Heidi’s work also includes Punk Rock Domestics and Franky & Minx. Minx chats about her work; spiritual journey so far; mantras; and getting things done! Super inspring!
“You see so much bad stuff in the world, or so many stupid things in the press; banal things that don’t make a difference in the world except to fuel a gossip fire. I have had so many people reach out to me since starting this – offering their skills, wanting to come and work with me while I am there. People I have never met, but who have found out about the project because of people spreading the word virally. I like people stepping up, and saying, “I don’t have a lot of money, but I can build a website, or pitch a documentary movie.” It is a very amazing reminder that we are a global community, one that’s not always dictated by language or lines on a map.”~Heidi Minx, Built On Respect (book extract)

TRIPLE ZINE LAUNCH & DEBUT EXHIBITION,
SEPTEMBER 1 – 3, 2010
@ BLEEDING HEART GALLERY, Brisbane
“ZINES are independent little magazines published by people like you and me and completely devoted to the D-I-Y (Do-It-Yourself) ethics. They are very diverse, covering topics from music, art, politics, parenting, ethnicity, sexuality, class issues, religion, feminism and much more. In zines anybody can write about anything. Zines usually have a small circulation and are distributed at concerts, record stores, through friends, mail, distros…” ~borrowed from GrrrlZines.net
