OCA students past and present have been busy putting together the latest edition of the Edge fanzine;
Sharing in the digital age has taken on a new meaning. We ‘share’ social media posts and news stories with both positive and negative consequences. Anecdotal evidence can spread as fact with little effort involved. Knowledge is power, no matter its veracity.
The internet has however made courses like those offered by OCA possible. We can share images and have dialogue despite geographical restrictions. Social media and discussion boards were key to my experience as a student.
In putting together a proposal for this issue, I was particularly interested in how we would work collaboratively despite not being physically together. We present a mix of individual and collaborative work, and are hugely proud to share it with you.
We have 100 hardcopy versions of this issue to give away, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with fanzine as the subject together with your name, student number and postal address by the 5 January.
