Looking for people to give zine readings/talks/workshops as well as having a stall at the GGB Zine Fest 25th August in East London!
Please message me or email firstname.lastname@example.org
(it would be soooo much appreciated if you could post this for me please, really striving to have a diverse feminist zinefest <3)
Community: If any of you participate in this event or contact the organizers, please share your experience and send us any questions, comments or concerns.
Girls Get Busy is a non-profit feminist collective supporting female writers, musicians and artists with a monthly zine. They are based in London, UK and curated by Beth Siveyer.
We haven’t partnered with them in the past and their online store doesn’t seem to have any zines by people of color at this time … We also don’t see any documentation online that confirms that GGB has ever done anything to specifically support zinesters of color.
Also, the question “any POC zinesters in London?” kinda implies that GGB isn’t already informed about zinesters of color in London (of which there are several). But perhaps that’s just provocative phrasing to encourage people to respond.
… We’re cautious about what we signal boost on this Tumblr, but this opportunity seems like a lot of fun for those who have the means and time to participate.
We’re especially interested in connecting with POC zinesters overseas, so if this helps accelerate that process, great! <3
For other non-poc who are interested in collaborating with POC Zine Project, please read our FAQ made especially for you.
We hope that GGB makes involving zinesters of color a priority and that our signal boost aids in those efforts.
