It’s not easy to talk about mental illness, especially for those who have it. In Indonesia, mental illness is still considered as taboo. Some even said that people with mental illness are just being dramatic, lacking prayers, using the illness as an excuse and more. All those things became the reason why 2 AM Club exist. They’re making a zine to tell the story of their fight against the illness. 2 AM Club intend to give constructive informations about facing an illness. The aim is to investigate various illness from many perspectives and giving informations about mental health services around the city.
2 AM Club released their first ever zine called “You’re Not Alone” at Sugar We’re Going Down Singing. Now, they are ready to launch their second edition called “Embracing Our Fragility” on Saturday, 26th November 2016. The launching party will be held at Sunset Limited, Kemang. The launch party is free and you’ll get the second edition zine there. Not only that, you also can see acoustic performances by Rekah and Indigo Moiré. There’s also gonna be a bookbinding workshop session by Tusuk. The show starts from 2pm until 5 pm. For more info, visit 2 AM Club’s instagram and twitter account!
