Massachusetts area zinesters and comic artists: come out Sept 15 for a fun event at Papercut Zine Library!

POC Zine Project fundraiser event at Papercut Sept 15 2012

Are you a zinester and or comic artist in/around Massachusetts who wants to support the POC Zine Project tour? Then send some positive energy and support to Anna Mudd, who is organizing a POC Zine Project fundraiser/zine reading/zine swap event at Papercut Zine Library for September 15!

Anna asked us to let everyone know that they are looking for area zinesters and comic artists who would like to read and/or table at the event. If you’re interested and/or have questions, contact Anna directly: anna.mudd AT gmail DOT com.

There will be a Facebook invite and more details available soon, but for now here’s the scoop:

Fundraiser for PoC Zine Project Tour: Reading and Zine swap featuring local zine makers of color (allies welcome!)

Location: Papercut Zine Library (inside Lorem Ipsum Books)

1299 Cambridge St.
Cambridge MA 02134

Time and date: 3-5pm on Sept. 15th

Papercut is a fully-functioning lending library, with a focus on hand-made and independently produced materials. Their collection includes everything from the all-familiar photocopied punk rock zines from the 80’s to hand-crafted personal zines bound together with yarn. Papercut is run by a collective of volunteer librarians. In addition to archiving and maintaining this collection, librarians also host a number of events including zine making workshops and zine release parties.

POC Zine Project is an archive and advocacy platform with a mission to make zines by people of color easy to find, distribute and share - community and activism through materiality. We go on tour Sept 24 - Oct 7 and this fundraiser will help support our efforts.

Big thanks again to Anna Mudd (check out Anna’s zines) and to Alana Kumbier and Rachel Casiano Hernandez for setting this in motion <3 <3 <3

POC ZINE PROJECT Interview with Jude Vachon @ Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Main Zine Collection

Big thanks to Jude Vachon, a wonderful POC Zine Project ally who has assisted us with logistics and resources in Pittsburgh for this fall’s tour. She also interviewed POC Zine Project founder Daniela Capistrano to get some background on the platform’s origins.

Interview excerpt:

JUDE: How has the project been for you to do? What have you learned/enjoyed/experienced?

DANIELA: This project has been so many things to me … For one, it’s been a tangible way to connect online and IRL with radical POC and zinesters of color, which means so much to me. What I’ve learned is that advocacy is something anyone can do. Right now, we’re partnering with Lisa Darms at the Fales Library for NYU to add more zines by people of color to their collection, which will be referenced in an upcoming book through the Feminist Press. This is just one example of simple but important things that people can do to support visibility for zinesters of color.

But the biggest lesson for me has been trusting the process. With DIY projects, there are often so many moving pieces and you have to learn how to trust your allies and be patient with things that take time to evolve. When I started the project, for a while it felt like shouting in the dark. Now I feel like I’m in this big auditorium with a bunch of excited folks asking me a ton of questions at once, also offering to help. It’s beautiful and overwhelming.

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Main Zine Collection is cataloged on LibraryThing if you’d like to see what zines they have in the collection or search for a particular title.

If you’d like to sign up to be on their zines email list, send an email to Jude Vachon at vachonj@carnegielibrary.org. 

Jude Vachon is a multi-talented artist, crafter, librarian, health care advocate, and founder of the amazing project Be Well Pittsburgh. In this video portrait, she demonstrates a bit of sewing, shows us her colorful creations, and discusses Be Well Pittsburgh and why she stands for universal health care.

Meet POC Zine Project tour member Mimi Thi Nguyen!

POC Zine Project tour member Mimi Thi Nguyen

Mimi Thi Nguyen is Associate Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies and Asian American Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Her first book, called The Gift of Freedom: War, Debt, and Other Refugee Passages, focuses on the promise of “giving” freedom concurrent and contingent with waging war and its afterlife (Duke University Press, 2012). She is also co-editor with Fiona I.B. Ngo and Mariam Lam of a special issue of positions on Southeast Asians in diaspora (20:3, Winter 2012).

With her second project on the obligations proposed by beauty, she continues to pursue her scholarship through the frame of transnational feminist cultural studies, and in particular as an untangling of the liberal way of war that pledges aid, freedom, rights, movement, and other social goods. Nguyen is also co-editor with Thuy Linh Nguyen Tu of Alien Encounters: Pop Culture in Asian America (Duke University Press, 2007), and publishes on queer subcultures and punk feminisms.

More information can be found at mimithinguyen.com.

Nguyen has published zines since 1991, including Slander (formerly known by other titles) and the compilation zine Race Riot (1997 and 2002). Race Riot is the first zine to comprehensively address race and racisms in punk and riot grrrl. Her zines are the objects of much academic study, which is an odd situation she addresses in her “Afterward” for the collection Punkademics: The Basement Show in the Ivory Tower (edited by Zack Furness), and in the latest issue of Slander.

She is a former Punk Planet columnist and a Maximumrocknroll shitworker. She blogs about music, politics, and more at thread & circuits (threadandcircuits.wordpress.com). She is also co-author of the research blog on dress and beauty threadbared (iheartthreadbared.wordpress.com). 

Here is what Mimi had to say about joining the POC Zine Project tour:

I wanted to be a part of these events and this tour for two reasons. The first has to do with the retrospective turn in academic and popular monographs about punk and riot grrrl, and in particular the publication (within a year of each other) of Sara Marcus’s Girls to the Front and the edited collection White Riot (which republished an old Punk Planet column of mine).

As I wrote elsewhere, this retrospective turn with its subsequent institutionalization of some stories about punk and riot grrrl and not others had been troubling me: What does it mean, for instance, to define punk feminisms through riot grrrl without a memory of other punk feminisms? What falls out when women of color feminisms are observed to be a frequent citation in grrrl zines (bell hooks being perhaps the most popular), but not an ongoing contestation within the movement? How do we critique the narrativization of punk as a white phenomenon, which is both true and false?

How can we trouble the usual story of punk as a white riot through a recognition that people of color (around the world) and have always been integral to punk musics, punk aesthetics, punk histories and punk politics – a recognition that would disrupt our echoing absence from the archives, but also disavowing our appropriation into those archives as an uncomplicated presence?

So I want to be able to respond to the institutionalization of some stories and not others, and as well some storytellers and not others. This leads me full circle to the second reason I wanted to go on this tour, which is the same reason I did the Race Riot zines in the first place (which I started to compile way back in 1995) – to connect with other punks of color about this thing we love and sometimes hate, to present something –a zine, a tour— that might make sense of that push and pull and give it a history, and then to create something new between us.  

Oh, and a third reason — because I am not a musician (and never a roadie), I’ve never been on tour. I’m excited to finally get my chance to drive for hours on end in a van with a bunch of rad punk girls of color!

Mimi has been involved with POC Zine Project since late 2010. Here is what she shared about how that relationship evolved:

I first got involved with The POC Zine Project when Daniela approached me, asking if she might be able to get copies and scans of the original Race Riot compilation zines to archive and distribute freely (editor’s note: you can read and download RR #1 here!). As a punk and a scholar whose intellectual and political genealogies include women of color feminisms, I thought this was such a brilliant idea (I have long loved the Queer Zine Archive Project), and I immediately said “Of course!”
Then last fall, I was due to be on the East Coast for a lecture at a Philadelphia university, and I approached Jenna Freedman at the Barnard Zine Library about possibly doing a free gig while I was there on the other university’s dime. In no time at all, she contacted The POC Zine Project and For the Birds Collective, and together with Daniela Capistrano and Kate Wadkins, these amazing persons brought together the first Meet Me At The Race Riot event in November 2011.

The response to the event was so moving (despite the windowless basement in which we found ourselves) that we brought another version of the event together for the Chicago Zine Fest the following spring. Again the response was incredible, and solidified my support for The POC Zine Project.

Community: Mimi will be participating in ALL of our tour dates! Please help her offset the cost of participating in this tour by making a donation and spreading the word about the tour.

Thanks again Mimi, for going on tour with us and supporting POC Zine Project! <3

POC Zine Project 2012 tour update: Pittsburgh x2!

Community:

We recently updated our original tour date announcement. To recap, here are the latest changes:

Oct 2    Bloomington, IN (NOT in IL as previously noted)

Oct 4    Pittsburgh, PA (NOT in Blacksburg, VA as previously noted)

That’s right - we’ll be in Pittsburgh on both September 26 (DIY evening show) and October 4 (university event). We will not be in Blacksburg, VA during this first tour.

We will be collaborating with folks in VA on an event to take place sometime next year, so stay tuned for that.

The other tour dates are looking solid so this will (probably) be the last city/date change. We want to be as transparent as possible through this tour planning process.

Thank you for understanding that planning an all volunteer tour of this magnitude is pretty ambitious and we have to adapt (quickly) as factors change <3

We’ll have details for each city in the coming weeks, but until then, here’s how you can help us make this 12 city tour happen:

WAYS YOU CAN HELP NOW

1. CONTACT US and let us know if you’re interested in volunteering, have a band and want to perform, want to table, can help out with hosting us overnight, can assist with livetweeting and livestreaming from events, etc.

2. DONATE to help us offset the cost of this tour, vehicle rental and gas money. We appreciate every cent. POC Zine Project is 100% a volunteer entity.

3. We want folks to table and to sell/trade poc zines at our shows! Very soon we’ll share more details but for now contact us if you’re interested in participating.

4. Do you write for a print or online publication that would like to share information about the tour and event details as they happen? Contact us for interviews or connect us with your friends who do. We want as many folks as possible to find out about this tour and why we feel POC Zine Project is vital to DIY/punk/zine/activism communities.

5. Reblog this post and share the link with your friends!

Meet POC Zine Project tour member Cristy C. Road!

POC Zine Project tour member: Cristy C. Road

Cristy C. Road is a Cuban-American Artist and Writer. Blending her political principles, sexual identity, and social inadequacies- Road lives to testify the beauty of the imperfect.

Here is what CCR had to say about joining the POC Zine Project tour:

I felt thrilled to participate in this tour because it’s incredibly important to me. Emphasizing the voices of POC in Zine culture (and any media) is imperative to revolutionizing any “alternative” space. If diversity isn’t present we aren’t moving forward.

Road’s endeavors in illustrating and publishing began when writing a punk rock zine, Greenzine, for ten years. The eventually included narratives on race, gender, and eliminating oppression the punk and activist communities. She resumed to illustrate countless record album covers, book covers, political organizations, magazine articles, and more.

Road has published an illustrated novel about high school, mental health, sexuality, and Miami entitled INDESTRUCTIBLE, a postcard book entitled DISTANCE MAKES THE HEART GROW SICK, and BAD HABITS, an Illustrated love story about healing, drugs, gay nightlife, and her telepathic connections to the destruction of New York City. Roads work has also been featured in the Baby Remember My Name: New Queer Girl Writing Anthology, Live Through This Anthology, Reproduce and Revolt, and countless other published works.

She’s toured nationally and internationally on her own, and with SISTER SPIT, an all-queer spoken-word road-show. She is currently working on a TAROT CARD DECK with Author, Michelle Tea and her band, THE HOMEWRECKERS.

Road’s latest novel, SPIT AND PASSION (A graphic novel about coming out, maintaining her Cuban cultural roots, and an obsession with Green Day) is due out on Feminist Press in the fall. She hibernates in Brooklyn, NY.

SPIT AND PASSION by Cristy C. Road (coming this fall)

Community: Cristy C. Road will be participating in ALL of our tour dates! Please help her offset the cost of participating in this tour by purchasing her zines, music and spreading the word about the tour.

Here’s a great interview by BITCH MAGAZINE: Sm{art}: Diggin’ Deep With Cristy C. Road

Quote from the interview:

I really like being on tour—that’s one of my all-time favorite things—living on tour is really therapeutic. I’m going on the people of color zinester tour, People of Color Zine Project, in September, and it’s gonna rule. I think those are my favorite things.

Thanks again CCR, for going on tour with us and supporting POC Zine Project! <3
