Autostop is goin on the road (prob in an unsolicited ride, lolz) for EDUFACTORY in Ngunnawal Country, Canberra, 29 September – 1 October. Edufactory will be three days of radical self-education, criticism and organisation intended to bring together students who seek a way out of the present crisis in university education and the integration of universities into the market. I haven’t really fleshed out the deets yet but regardless, I’ll be in town somewhere with zines, & maybe even a table to put em on. Come!
October 6-7 spells big weekend of DIY action. On October 6 this is happening:
Brisbane zine Bizoo’s messy farewell party as part of Melbourne Fringe Fest. Fringe sez:
“To celebrate the launch of Bizoo’s final release – The Best, The Worst and the Trash That Never Made It – Bizoo, Smells Like Zines and Knuckle Tatt Productions invites you to a very special event featuring noise makers, art creators and trouble makers. Legendary music venue the Old Bar plays host to a no-holds-barred night of crashin Bizoo muso mates, plus hands-in-the-muck workshops and exhibition upstairs. Be early when the trouble kicks off with an up close and personal panel of really intelligent DIY’ers, and stay late as the amber specials will flow all night!”
I am one of the DIY panel folk, though I can’t vouch for my intelligence.
Next day! Format Zine Fair is happening in Adelaide. Sticky Institute will be there with an amaze-o Feed The Animals fundraiser to keep that little pocket of zine heaven alive. If you come, you will have the chance to buy illustrious zines at illustrious prices to support Sticky. I got Veganistan … one & three-quarters in the pipeline for it.
