UPDATE: Due to pretty much all of our volunteers being at OTHER WORLDS this weekend, we will unfortunately be closed this Saturday (23rd May). Our apologies for the inconvenience of this.
Sticky will be at the second annual Other Worlds Zine Fair, taking place this weekend in Sydney. #otherworldszinefair
Other Worlds was created as a critical response to the MCA Zine Fair, and held at the same time, because their venue (Museum of Contemporary Art) is sponsored by Transfield – the same company awarded a contract by the Australian Government to run detention centres where asylum seekers are mandatorily held.
Many zinesters did not want to be part of an event that would create cultural validation for a company whose profits partially derive from detaining those seeking protection from abuses of their human rights. So an alternative was formed, and this year Other Worlds includes a weekend of workshops, talks, screenings and other zine events. View the full program for the weekend here.
The zine fair takes place at Glebe Town Hall on Saturday 23rd May, 11am-4pm. Facebook event here.
