BRING YOUR ZINES!
We are encouraging folks to bring any zines they want to share, sell or trade. We’ll have space to do that.
We’ll be sharing details in real time on Twitter @poczineproject, so feel free to follow along and send us your questions and comments with #poczines!
Diana LL104 (follow the signs)
Lower Level 104
We’ll be in Diana LL104. The Diana is an orange/glass building. LL means lower level. Go down the stairs you’ll see in front of you when you enter. A zine clubber has said she’ll have the fliers up by 5:30, so you should have them to follow.
Barnard Zine Libary: http://zines.barnard.edu/
Barnard’s zines are written by women (cis- and transgender) with an emphasis on zines by women of color. We collect zines on feminism and femme identity by people of all genders. The zines are personal and political publications on activism, anarchism, body image, third wave feminism, gender, parenting, queer community, riot grrrl, sexual assault, trans experience, and other topics.
FOR THE BIRDS: http://forthebirdscollective.org/
FOR THE BIRDS is a New York City-based feminist collective. We work towards establishing alternative spaces that promote the creative interests of women-identified community members. For the Birds is a collaborative group of organizers with backgrounds in feminism, social justice work, and various artistic pursuits. Through DIY feminist cultural activism, For The Birds aims to empower and support radical women of action.
POC ZINE PROJECT: https://www.facebook.com/pages/POC-Zine-Project/304152466201
We want to make it easier for POC (People of Color) zine fans and their supporters to find a diverse selection of zines made by POC. Zines are a vital component in the long tradition of self-publication. They share knowledge and experiences that supplement (and often contradict) the information that other sources distribute, encouraging free thought. There are many valuable zine collections in the United States (many accessible online) but none that are devoted to curating POC zines. POC Zine Projectâ€™s mission is to makes ALL zines by POC easy to find, share, and distribute.
Zine lovers: This event was always free, but if you’d like to support the Occupy movement while enjoying zine love, PLEASE BRING SOME BOOKS AND/OR ZINES TO DONATE. The Barnard Library Zine Collection, POC Zine Project and For the Birds Collective + Distro will gather what you bring and coordinate getting it to the new The People’s Library that was destroyed early this morning by the NYPD. Much love and gratitude! Please share widely. â™¥
