It is a project that aims to challenge the norms of parenting (and other norms like gender, race, class, sexuality, age, ability and capitalism) and explore alternatives; inspire writing as an act of rebellion; support radical parenting, politics and action; value parents/caregivers/children as integral to building communities of resistance; create collective knowledge and networks of support and mutual aid amongst parents, caregivers and their allies in Australia.
If you have a zine or resource which you would like to distro through Tricycle please email tricyclezinedistro at riseup.net
* Radical Parenting is an imperfect term and is meant here as inclusive and diverse – an exploration of parenting styles that value respect, trust, autonomy, difference, non-oppression, learning, love and revolution.
Hi, I’m Lara. I currently reside with baby Ruby and my partner on my own island of isolation on Viti Levu, Fiji. Tricycle Zine Distro and Building Blocs Zine are some projects I’m trying my busy parent hands at. I also write the zine Raising Rebellion.
Through these projects I want to explore what it is to parent in a way that values respect, love, autonomy, difference, and non-oppression; to explore my own changing identity and desires; and to contribute to building radical communities. I also want to ensure child-rearing and the rest of life are not made mutually exclusive or the sole responsibility of parents.
And of course, like all parents, I’m interested in other stuff too!
