Thanks to an extremely passionate group of locals, Brisbane is set to host a huge array of talented artists and writers in it’s first ever Zine and Independent Comic Symposium, lovingly nicknamed ZICS. As the name suggests, ZICS will be providing a whole weekend of conferences and workshops focused around independent publishing. The event will open this coming Friday the 30th of August at The Edge with a launch party featuring The Bedroom Philosopher. Over the following two two days, artists and writers will have stalls set up with their personal creations available for sale or to trade. Workshops from paper making to self publishing mentoring will be held all afternoon starting at 1.30pm. ALL workshops are free (bar Papermaking which is $16 and a booking must be made via firstname.lastname@example.org). Head to the facebook event HERE to check out the program and see which workshops suit your needs and interests.
In order to run the event, the organisers set up a ‘pozible’ campaign, offering prizes and rewards to members of the community who helped fund the event. The deadline to donate has now passed, in total raising $8341, just over their target of $8000 to keep the event alive. ZICS is 100% not for profit and run by volunteers. These funds help to cover venue hire, support guest speakers and workshop presenters. The below video will introduce you to some of the energetic organisers and give you a feel for the event.
If you live in Brisbane, don’t miss this amazing event and celebration of creativity and hard work. THIS weekend, Friday the 30th to Sunday the 1st of September at The Edge, near the State Library of Queensland on Southbank.
