ZED is a new lifestyle zine written and edited by 16-20 year-olds based at The Gr@nd in Gravesend.

Since 2018, the group, who go by the name Gen Z, have worked with artist Ania Bas and designer Rose Nordin to learn new skills, including photography, design, creative writing, journalism, and illustration, and develop content.

ZED is a message from Gen Z, based on their real, lived experiences, expressing their interests, hopes, fears and plans for the future, as well as reflecting on their experiences through the project.

“We know the people before us were known as the SNOWFLAKE generations. But we feel we are so misrepresented by the generations before us, perhaps misunderstood. This magazine is our exploration into our true self representation. We don’t want to be simplified down to just one image.” Gen Z

If you are 16-25, or are an organisation who works with young people, based in North Kent, and would like to receive a free copy of ZED, please email [email protected], or pick up a copy at The Gr@nd, Monday to Friday through Estuary 2021.

ZED is supported by The Gr@nd, Kent County Council, and Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust.
