One of Us will be coming in print to the Sticky Institute soon - or you can see it now: http://ning.it/PC4rJx Responses welcome.
Hey Melb crew, hope you can make it along! We're also doing a pop up workshop at the Melb City library on the 10th of Oct from 2-6pm.
hey hey hey folks nothing like a little plug...
YOU is a free, weekly, anonymous, paper zine from Melbourne. PONY FOR NOW is a free, monthly, paper zine from Canberra. The two zines have come together for a super special split issue which will be launched as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival at Sticky Institute.
Date: 12th Oct (Friday)
I was just wondering if you guys know of any good zine/art/craft fairs in and around Melbourne?
Hey All - I've been asked to co-ordinate the TINA zine side of the TINA Sunday fair now - please email me at email@example.com to book a half table or full table stall . Thanks to the support of the NYFW and the conversations happening here, online and in person about the prohibitive cost of stalls, TINA is now able to offer the zine holders free stalls for the event and free public liability to those who need it. It will be a first in first serve basis for tables, but I'm looking forward to seeing all the new publications being made around Australia, and meeting some more new faces at the annual fair. Cheers, Elouise - Smells Like Zines Distro
Oh I don't think it's wrong of TINA - it's their zine fair so they can choose to do whatever they like. From what I hear the insurance cost at least is a requirement of the Newcastle City Council. But inevitably it will exclude a lot of the smaller ziners from participating. Really, who would bother going apart from the bigger comic stores and the zine distros?
I was talking to a distro proprietor about two years ago who mentioned that the TINA zine fair had gone down in quality of recent years. That's sad - I remember how excited I was when I lived in Newcastle and discovered it, when it was still smallish and they just held it in a tiny art gallery.
I put the info up about the TINA zine fair before I knew the details. Just so you know they are also asking for payment up front before your application is considered. So that's $45 before you know if you're even accepted. Pkus insurance etc.........
Vanessa - wow, $45 a table - plus insurance - plus (for those of us who live outside Newcastle) travel and accommodation*. Okay, that's just unaffordable.
*In my case I'd stay with parents.
To those thinking of having a stall at TiNA this year, did you know that it's $45 to have a zine stall? Also you need your own public liability insurance. I think this is pretty discouraging to most zine makers. If you think it's wrong, I encourage you to write to the organisers about it, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
