Glasgow Zine Fest 2016
When he’s not GIFing, tweeting and eating snacks at O Street, Josh P is doing these things for Glasgow Zine Fest, a self-publishing festival he co-founded with GSA grad student Lauren Davis. GZF is a grassroots DIY festival that champions makers and doers of all sorts, namely old-school self-published fanzines and comics. The festival also places an emphasis on championing equality and accessibility.
This year’s zine fest is this weekend (30/4–1/5) and features a full programme of creative, feminist, LGBT & equality-centric events. Here’s what’s on Saturday:
The UK premiere of Vega Darling’s Lost Grrrls: Riot Grrrl in LA is Saturday night at CCA.
Sunday 1 May brings us GZF’s bread-and-butter; a good ol’ zine fair. Zine makers, distributors and artists of all sorts will be digging in at The Old Hairdresser’s to show and sell their wares.
There’s also (free) on-site zine and badge making for curious people who’d like to learn on the fly, a GZF zine library and a zine library from Women’s Library. Keep up with GZF on the socials @glasgowzinefest. Alright pal!
