Calling all Zine makers, buyers, collectors and connoisseurs. Mix and mingle with fellow like-minded folk, create new works and indulge in all things independent press worthy on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 7-9 p.m. at the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Road. The casual, inclusive, free event is open to all levels of zine fanatics.
Whether you are so new to the concept you pronounce it incorrectly, or you are a 30 year veteran of the genre, all are welcome. Attendees will have the chance contribute artwork or written work to a community collaborated zine, as well as create their own mini masterpiece. Local authors and archivists from Zine organizations will be onsite as well to showcase and swap their work and knowledge.
DAC encourages all zine authors to participate. If you are interested in tabling or showcasing your independent publication at this event, please email DACTheater@austintexas.gov.
