MAY 25-26 Big Zine Weekend: For the Elephant & InPrint Workshop!

15 May

Hi everyone! Thanks to everyone who came by our table at Pop shop Houston this past weekend; it was a great time. Now we’re getting geared up for two great events coming up soon, and in rapid succession to boot!

 

The first event is a zine showcase called For The Elephant: Houston Zine Jamboree on Saturday, May 25 from 2-6pm at the Texas Art Asylum (1719 Live Oak, Houston, TX 77003).  There will be high school students exhibiting their zine work as well as a bunch of other artists.  Zine Fest Houston will have a booth there with all of our regular merchandise for sale/browsin’.

The following day, Sunday, May 26 from 2-5pm, we will be hosting a workshop titled Be Your Own Publisher! at the Inprint offices (1520 W. Main, Houston, TX 77006).  For more information on Inprint, check out their website at www.inprinthouston.org.  This workshop will focus on introducing a variety of DIY publishing techniques and we will go over how to create a self-made book through a couple of hands-on exercises.  We will be joined by John Pluecker, a writer, interpreter, translator and co-founder of the language justice and literary experimentation collaborative, Antena.  Optional materials to bring to the workshop include any personal writing and/or collage images, but we will provide basic supplies for the workshop such as paper, pens, glue sticks etc.
Also, due to a limited amount of space, we are kindly asking that you RSVP via email to info@zinefesthouston.org if you would like to attend the workshop and if you plan on bringing a +1.

Coming Sunday, April 7 from 1-5pm at Mandell Park!

Bring your favorite dish/drink, blankets and zines to swap and share! What better way to spend a Sunday than eating great food, hanging out in the sun and celebrating in the joy that self-made publications can bring? This picnic is super casual, so feel free to bring your friends and/or family!

Don’t worry if you don’t have a zine to share. There will be tons of zines to browse and look at!

In addition, The Billy Pilgrim Traveling Library, a new Houston-based bookmobile, will be on hand during the picnic to accept zine donations to their collection!

If you haven’t heard about The BPTL yet, then visit their website at http://thebptl.com/ for more information.
