POCZP’S PANEL DISCUSSION AT L.A. ZINE FEST

POC Zine Project presents … Cultivating Culture & Community: Strategies For Overcoming The Bullshit

Curated and moderated by POC Zine Project founder Daniela Capistrano, this panel of community organizers and artists from across the country will share their strategies for organizing events, starting a distro and building community on both a local and national level. Hear solutions for solving problems that frequently come up in any grassroots/volunteer-based movement or project (not limited to zines).

Join the discussion by attending the panel, asking questions and contributing your ideas. Follow along and share online by accessing the panel hashtag on Twitter, which will be #LAZFCC.

Date: Sunday, February 16, 2014

Panel Time: 1pm - 2pm PST

Panel Location: In the “Passageway” directly adjacent to the parking garage of Helms, located at 8711 Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA. 90232. The entrance is located between La Dijonaise and Vitra.

SPOTLIGHTING BROWN RECLUSE ZINE DISTRO

For the hour immediately following our event, there will be a table set up nearby where Nyky Gomez will table with BRZD zines. Make sure to stop by after our panel to get a wide assortment of zines created by people of color!

You can also find Nyky tabling at the POC Zine Project dedicated table throughout the day (10am - 5pm). POCZP is giving Nyky access to two tables in order to accommodate BRZD’s large inventory.

COMMUNITY SHOUT-OUTS 

We don’t represent POC zinesters (we are a resource and advocacy platform). There will be plenty of other POC folks at L.A. Zine Fest and L.A. Zine Week doing their thing independent from POCZP. Show your support! Here are some ways to do that:

1) Come to Beyond Baroque Gallery on Saturday, February 15, from 4 pm to 5:30 pm and enjoy zines & comix readings, presented by your emcee, Eryca Sender (“My Little Friend,” “Dear High School Boy”)!

Marya Erinn Jones (“Mocha Chocolata Momma Zine,” ABQ Zine Fest) will be one of the readers! Marya organized our ABQ #RaceRiotTour date in 2013.

Beyond Baroque is at 681 North Venice Blvd., Venice, California 90291.

2) We Are In Zine Love With You! A Zine / Novella Release Party Thursday, February 13, from 7-9pm PST

Zine store and art gallery &Pens (sister store to San Francisco’s storied Needles And Pens) is hosting readings from “LA’s amazing and diverse writers, performers and zinesters”–that means Yumi Sakugawa (“Mundane Fortunes for the Next Ten Billion Years”), Zoë Ruiz (The Rumpus; Trop), Lilliam Rivera (2013 PEN Center USA Emerging Voices Fellow), Tomas Moniz (Rad Dad; “Bellies and Buffalos”), Bianca Barragan (Trust Me: I Know What I’m Doing), and Jonas Cannon (Cheer the Eff Up)!

Get reader bios and more at the event page.

L..A. ZINE FEST Venue Information

Fest Date and Time: Sunday, February 16th, 10am - 5pm (tabling hours). Related events will run until approximately 7pm.

Location: The tabling portion of the Fest will be held in the parking garage of Helms, located at 8711 Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA. 90232. The entrance is located between La Dijonaise and Vitra.

Events will take place in what is known as the “Passageway” directly adjacent to the parking garage. When you arrive, you’ll most likely walk through the L.A. Zine Fest Zine Library to get there.

Parking: Street Parking is available on Washington Blvd. (the meters don’t run on Sunday). The fine people at Culver City Hall have asked us to tell you not to park on residential streets. 

A complete list of event programming can be found HERE.

ABOUT 2014 L.A. ZINE FEST

L.A. Zine Fest is organized by a collective of zine-enthusiasts dedicated to promoting zine culture as a means to connect the pre-exisiting communities in L.A.–artistic or otherwise. They aim to create opportunities for people to share self-published works and host events that encourage ideas to spill out onto paper in pictures and words. They believe that by embracing the urge to create and sharing ideas there can be a more robust and formidable local zine community that extends beyond bookstores and bedrooms. L.A. Zine Fest is an opportunity for Southern California’s zinesters to come together en masse in order to meet and exchange ideas with those from all over the country.

Join us this year on February 16, 2014, when LAZF welcomes 175+ exhibitors of zines and small press publications to Helms Bakery as zinesters, comics creators and DIY publishers to come together to share their work with each other and with the public at large.

SUPPORT POC ZINE PROJECT

If everyone in our community gave $10, we would more than meet our fundraising goal for 2014. If you have it to spare, we appreciate your support. All funds go to ongoing advocacy costs, the Legacy Series and the poverty zine series.

We are rebooting our org structure and operations in 2014 and will be transparent about that process. Stay tuned.

POC Zine Project tabling at Jan. 31, 2013 event

We know some of you are bummed that this rad event is 1) far away from you and 2) 21+. We hear ya. Sometimes it seems like all the cool shit is in NYC, right? But that’s just not the case. We know from our travels that people are doing amazing things all over the world, including in small towns.

But this amazing thing is actually going down in NYC tonight, so if you can make it, show some love and stop by our table and For The Birds Collective’s! POCZP founder Daniela Capistrano will be there in solidarity with Mimi and the other readers, along with our Chief Fanalyst Julia B. and Race Riot! tour vet Cristy C. Road.

We’ve been thinking about all the people who can’t afford to purchase Women & Performance’s “Punk Anteriors” special double issue (it’s $85) or attend tonight’s event, so we’ve snagged a copy and made it available to read online, zine-style. <3

We’re also going to live-tweet when we can from @poczineproject using the hashtag #PunkAnteriors. Look for our tweets! <3

“Punk Anteriors: Theory, Genealogy, Performance” is issue 22.2-3 of Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory and was co-edited by Beth Stinson and Fiona I.B. Ngô.

The issue emphasizes punk feminist spaces and times by bringing them to the forefront to forge and generate “punk anteriors.” We use the word “anteriors” in the title of this issue to think through the included articles that specifically address punk spaces and remnants—plotting what might come before, or anterior to, the telling of punk’s stories in two senses. First, punk anteriors point to the temporal, interrogating punk’s (always seemingly) resistant genealogy and questioning the source of politics and performances for punk. Second, we mobilize punk anteriors in the material and spatial sense of place, bodies, and archives. That is to say, we re-consider the context for the everyday performances of punk as occurring within atmospheres of imperial design; racial, feminist, and anarchist social movements; and immigration, poverty, and dislocation. 

Along with the hope of re-centering people of color in punk’s narratives, part of the goal with this issue has been to expand the places where we find valuable knowledge and aesthetics, to re-imagine who counts as an intellectual producer in punk’s history, and to work across genres.  Though the process was not always perfect, we have found this track productive and insightful, and hope that this model might inspire others to explore these topics and others in similar and even more brilliant ways.

COMMUNITY: After reading “Punk Anteriors,” let us know what you think! Click here to submit your review of excerpts of the journal or the entire publication.

EVENT DETAILS

Big thanks to tonight’s organizers for creating punkanteriors.tumblr.com/ and making this roundtable discussion as accessible as possible to the general public.

We also want to give an especially BIG thank you to this issue’s co-editors Beth Stinson and Fiona I.B. Ngô <3 Thank you for disrupting problematic facets of academia in your own ways.

POC Zine Project

lazinefest:

What advice would you give to a first-time zinester or to an aspiring zinemaker?
Try to attend as many in-person events as you can. It’s useful to see how other zinesters table, what different zine communities are like, and where you feel comfortable. When you make your zine, do it to please yourself – not anyone else. You can’t please everyone. But certainly get feedback from people you trust and admire. Don’t be afraid to reach out to zinesters you don’t know for guidance and tips – most people are really friendly and willing to help you out if you ask nicely. And of course, make sure you buy and trade for zines created by POC. If you don’t have any in your collection yet, check out our zine spotlight for suggestions!
What’s the best thing that ever happened to you because of zines?
POCZP recently went on a 13-city Race Riot! tour celebrating zines by people of color. We met so many rad people (many white allies attended each event) and had the opportunity to do POCZP panels at six universities! We love the way zines can bring people from all walks of life together.
The second leg of the Race Riot! tour will be in the fall of 2013, through the Southwest and up the West Coast. “Like” us on Facebook to stay informed, and follow poczineproject.tumblr.com to learn more about zines by POC, great work by our allies and more.

It was a truly amazing experience that reconnected me profoundly with love and rage.

It was amazingly humbling to interact with people who had encountered my zines in the last fifteen years…” - Mimi Thi Nguyen shares her experience as a member of the 2012 Race Riot! tour

POC Zine Project's report back from C.L.I.T FEST 2012 + zine giveaway!

Julia B. aka War In A Dress read for POC Zine Project from her new zine Suburban Jamerican Fancy at this year’s C.L.I.T FEST at the Reform Church in Highland Park, New Jersey on July 13, 2012.

Here’s what Julia shared:

Reading at C.L.I.T. Fest was great! I was a little self-conscious about reading, since I haven’t made a zine in a long time, but it went well. I sat on stage to read, and in that intimate space it felt really comfortable. A couple people came up to me after I finished to talk, so that was good… who doesn’t like friendly strangers?

Bummed that I didn’t have the chance to see the entire night, but I had an awesome time while I was there. Really enjoyed 3Jane and Aye Nako, the two bands I got to see, and it was great to meet Rachel and Sari (the folks behind Hoax Zine) and Cristy Road (Glad to know I’m not the only one whose middle school perspective shifted thanks to Green Day’s Dookie album!).

The energy there was great; the enthusiasm of the organizers and the attendees for the folks who came through showed, and I think that proves well that if you really want to see the kind of art/music/writing/whatever you’re into, coming together with like minds and creating an event can be really rewarding.

If you weren’t able to attend and wish you could have experienced Julia B.’s reading live, we’ve scanned and uploaded Suburban Jamerican Fancy for you to read and download online. Julia describes it as “a brown suburban weirdo’s ways of escape.”

Enjoy!

EDITOR’S NOTE: POC Zine Project is a volunteer-run organization. If you want to support our efforts and our tour happening this fall, please consider making a donation. Thanks! <3
