Zine Fest Houston Seeking Magazine/Supply Donations for Teen and Adult Zine Workshops
Hello People of the Artworld!
If you are unfamiliar with Zine Fest Houston below is a little bit about our organization:
Zine Fest Houston is an event dedicated to promoting zines, mini-comics, and other forms of small press, alternative, underground, and DIY media and art.
It is also a grassroots attempt to build the local zine, DIY, and alternative media scenes and form networks with media creators in other areas.
ADMISSION IS ALWAYS FREE and low cost table space is available for zinesters, writers, artists, distros and other individuals and groups involved in the creation, publication, distribution, or promotion of alternative media and DIY.
The festival is a new and different experience every time, offering a diverse new crop of zines and other projects every year (including many never before seen anywhere else) and other unique sights (such as a live chicken manning one of the exhibitor tables during our first festival). The goal of the event is for attendees to discover new zines and be inspired to create their own diy art and media projects.
Zine Fest Houston is also working to branch out in terms of offering community outreach programming for teens and adults through instructional zine workshops and various community gatherings as well as partnering with local non-profit organizations and for-profit businesses.
We are currently seeking magazine donations (preferably related to travel or art, but we aren't picky if you have other kinds...however, we do not want xxx-rated ones!) for our upcoming zine workshops for teens at branches of the Harris County Public Library as well as some other workshops for adults.
If you would like to help out even more, we are also in need of the following supplies for the workshops: glue sticks, scissors, rulers, stamps + ink pads, white printer paper, collage materials (magazines, photos etc.), sharpies/pens/pencils, tape, stapler, printer, type writer, newsprint paper.
We anticipate having to supply materials for about 100 people in total for all of the workshops and although we do have some room in the budget for supplies, we are an extremely small organization with limited funds.
Please contact us (Stacy Kirages and Maria Heg) at firstname.lastname@example.org with what kind of magazines/supplies you have, how many, and possible dates/times for us to come by and take them off your hands. As a thank you, we will send you a complimentary 2013 Zine Fest Houston compilation!! So please don't forget to include your address in the email as well.
We appreciate any and all donations, and thank you very much for your support.
