3pm • PANEL: ZINES, ARTISTS, AND GENTRIFICATION•

Artists have often been identified as catalysts for gentrification in neighbourhoods, even while  long-time residents don’t get acknowledged for their existing  contributions to arts and culture.

How can DIY artists and spaces think critically about their role in gentrification? How can communities centre existing art practices in neighbourhoods? And how can we respond to neighbourhood change through zines, comics, and underground publishing? Our panelists respond to these questions and more.

5pm • BROKEN PENCIL ZINE AWARDS •

This year marks Broken Pencil’s first ever International Zine Awards! With over 175 entries in the categories of perzine, comic/art zine, how-to zine, lit zine and political zine, never before has there been an opportunity to reward zine excellence on quite this scale!

Join us for the Broken Pencil Zine Awards Show, where we will be bringing the best in zines to life on stage as we award each category their winner and countdown to the announcement of the Best Zine 2017!
