Quarantine Dream Zine is a zine about waking up and listening to our dreams. It is about the political unconscious, revolutionary surrealism and the role the imagination plays in envisioning otherworlds. It features dream comics, musings on Chinese dream culture, poetry and descriptions of vivid dreams in over the period of being in quarantine for a year in Tkaronto, reflecting feelings of homesickness, genderqueerness, pandemic anxieties, dread and non-linear time.
Our ideal history taught in schools would be a full account of the ongoing colonialism in Aotearoa and clear understandings of why and how things happened centring indigenous truths. JJ Carberry has stated that a decolonised curriculum would mean that hapū would have direct influence on the information that is taught about the local region. Bringing in colonial history of Aotearoa can help young people connect the Aotearoa context to global colonialism in a deep and meaningful way.
