Wellington Zinefest is hosting two days of markets to celebrate the thriving self-publishing and zine scene here in Te Whanganui-a-Tara.
Same set up as usual: We'll have sixty unique stalls each day, loaded with self-made comics and zines.
From 11am to 12pm each day we'll run 'accessibility hour'. This is a chance for any visitors who, for whatever reason, can't attend when Zinefest is crowded. We'll have no music and try to maintain a low-stimulation environment.
The community table is a free stall where one of our volunteers will sell other people's zines on their behalf. If you'd like to sell your zines but can't, or don't want, to stallhold, the Community Table could be a good fit.
Our market is on the ground floor of Victoria University's School of Design Innovation. The space is wheelchair accessible, and there are disabled toilets available. If you have any specific requirements, or general ideas for how we can make our markets more accessible, please get in touch.
Preparation for this event was made possible with support from Creative New Zealand, Wellington City Council and Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington.
