Saturday 1st August
12 noon – 12 midnight
We hope you’ll join us at the Collaborama (as we’ve affectionately come to know it!) an all day event which will comprise many elements of the small press coming together. Tables will be set out in the main space downstairs at the miller for zinesters, comix and small press creators to exhibit and sell their work. There will also be space where any combination of visitors and exhibitors can get together to create pages which will be used to create a zine of the day. The garden will have a barbeque and the upstairs space will be used for workshops, film screenings and talks. In the evening Resonance FM’s Radio Orchestra will be performing a piece written by Ed Baxter which will be interpreted and illustrated live by two teams of small press artists on overhead projectors!

COLLABORAMA! booking tables and other information for artists.
Hey there everyone,
so, everything's go for this summer's events; the venues are all booked up, the anthology is on it's way and we are preparing for a wicked festival!
COLLABORAMA! will be happening on Saturday 1st August 2009 and right now we're starting to book tables out. The idea of the event is for artists, zinesters and self publishers to come and show and sell their work, as well as collaborate in making pages for a zine on the day, and there will be table space given to both aspects of the event.
If you would like a table space to exhibit and sell your work then we have various size tables.
The prices are
- five pounds for a half or ten pounds for a whole (of the smaller square pub tables)
- five pounds per quarter of larger tables
Regarding the zine making, the idea is to encourage visitors to take part and get involved, to help the process along we will have themes. These are just ideas so that people can get started more easily.
So far these are -
; maybe, the idea that lots of people in the city don't know each other, the lack of communities or people who interest us that we don't know.
The other is
"you and me"
; a lighthearted look at relationships, meeting someone for the first time, or maybe your relationship with not a person but something else, an idea maybe?
Also, these themes can be narrative or non narrative based...
In the evening the Resonance FM radio orchestra will be performing a piece written by Ed Baxter, the Director of Resonance FM. This will be really special and will be a collaboration between the orchestra and it's actors, and two teams of artists illustrating the performance live on overhead projectors!
If you are interested in being considered to be on one of these teams then also, get in touch.
Anyway, take care, looking forward to hearing from you all, come and get involved in Collaborama!
