Hundreds of zines, books, comic, and small press vendors! Trade, buy, sell, browse, chill, enjoy!

 

3pm – 4pm • PANEL: FEMINISM, MAGICK, AND THE SUPERNATURAL IN THE INDIE ARTS

Across a variety of media, zinesters and other indie creators have been increasingly claiming and returning to themes of magick, the occult, and the supernatural in their work. These practices and motifs are sometimes used to stake political claims and creating new critiques around feminism, gender, identity, race, and knowledge-making.

In this panel discussion, zinesters, artists and critics will discuss the role of magick and the supernatural in their work and in underground art communities today.

5pm – 6:30pm • PIZZA PUNKS PIZZA PARTY •

Cole Pauls will be in the house to throw the most killer zine fair pizza party ever imagined! Creator of the legendary Pizza Punks strip as well as the incredible Dakwäkãda Warriors, a comic incorporating Southern Tutchone language revival, will be in the house doing an artist talk and leading in the making of a massive collaborative pizza zine!
