details of times & happenings at Leeds Zine Fair
Details and times of happenings at Leeds Zine Fair THIS SUNDAY:
Exhibition: Posters of Inspirational European Women: Taken from the zine 'Shape & Situate' -- ALL DAY LONG!! 12pm-6pm
Workshop: Remembering Who We Are: exploring artistic and creative sociopolitical memory -- 12.30-1.30pm (so please come to the Zine Fair early!!)
All the details about these, and everything else can be found at: http://leedszinefair.footprinters.co.uk/index.php/whats-on
Also, if you haven't booked your own stall for your zines on Sunday then come and leave a bunch with me on the individual zine table. We'll be accepting zines all day long and will sell them on your behalf. Come back before the zine fair closes at 6pm to pick up your money and any unsold zines (unfortunatley we can't post zines or money back to people after the zine fair, so please don't forget to pick up before 6pm. Thanks!) I'm looking forward to seeing lots of wonderful zines on the table.
Other goings on:
All day we will have "Have-A-Go" letterpress and screen printing set up in a "creative" area with Print Project and Musical Mathematics respectively.
There are two exhibitions also running throughout the day.
Shape and Situate are exhibiting their posters of inspirational women through history and there is the opportunity to bring in photocopies of your photographs to contribute to Torn Up & Photocopied.
Talks and workshops are as follows:
12.30pm - Remembering Who We Are - discussion and starting point of a collective zine about the formative events and influential people in our lives
1.30pm - Zine readings - bring yours and read a piece or just come to listen
