Hi guys ,as you know we were there at the first zine fair and this year it would be ideal for those who are interested to get involved. I am sharing this email with sarahs permission,she sent it to all the contributors. Jane xxx also......take a peek at the dublin zine-fair link below and think how tinderbox as a community could really have a super stall full of publication/s and be involved in some kick ass d.i.y art history in the making.
http://www.babybeefartpress.com/zinefair.html ❀ Hey everybody, Happy New Year to you all! I hope you are all ready for another year in independent publishing! In November I was lucky enough to attend the first ever Berlin Zine Fest. I was amazed by how well it was organised. It was a full weekend event. The opening hours were: Sat 10am until 12pm!! and Sunday 10am - 6pm.
There were loads of great free workshops, talks and zine readings. As well as a spoken word night and gig! I want the Dublin Zine Fair to grow this year, have it a full weekend long and have workshops and events at it. I would love to have a zine made over the weekend, the "Dublin Zine Fair Zine 2012", anyone can submit a page to it. They do this at the London Zine Symposium and they did one in Berlin too. It's a really brilliant souvenir from the event.
So it got me thinking, if I want it to grow I'm not going to be able to do it all alone. So I'm writing to you guys to see if any of you are interested in joining the Dublin Zine Fair team, to
help organise and promote the fair, and mostly to help with things on
the weekend and to make sure workshops and events run smoothly.
