Lumping it zine is a monthly project facilitated by artist Bec Vandyk, and is designed to create a printed space for dialogue regarding the rehabilitation of the open-cut mining landforms of Hazelwood and other mines in the region.
Pages are created by individuals and represent their ideas about various aspects of brown coal mining in the Latrobe Valley. Lumping it is not intended to be a factual publication, and readers are urged to research rehabilitation facts and concepts according to their interest and curiosity.

Obviously, Gippslandia loves more independent publications being created in our region. In releasing three of editions of Lumping it, Bec and PollyannaR have prompted community discourse on the rehabilitation of the Hazelwood mine while staying true to
a medium we love. Print is not dead.
