We have a lot of awesome things to share! Let’s take this in chronological order….

First, thank you to everyone who was able to come out this Wednesday for our event at The Camel. And big thank yous to the performers–Neil aka The Sixth Son, Gunboat, and Danger Lights. You all rock in my zine. In fact, ever since that night I’ve had a crick in my neck for attempting to rock like a headbanger. Lesson learned, but fun had. Check out some pictures from Wednesday above.

Second, we’re teaming up with Liberate RVA for their event on Friday, July 20th. It’s such an amazing cause. The night will include a discussion at 8 p.m. on the “True Roots of Human Violence” and after party at 9:30 p.m. at the Maplewood Anarchy Garden. Zines, like any creative activity and project, can be useful tools in spreading information about violence and prevention/care and in providing children and other survivors a safe, self-directed space to communicate and share their histories and healing. I’ll be there with information about zines, the Richmond Zine Fest, and conversation. For more information, please check out the event page and attend: Bomb in the Brain Freedom Gathering.

Last but not least, WE’VE GOT A SPACE! After much deliberation and looking at venues and space policies inside and outside the event-planning box, we decided to approach the Gay Community Center of Richmond (GCCR) again since they’re still operating in the building we love so much. For at least another year, we’re excited to be back at the GCCR again! With its accessible layout, free parking, spaciousness, and disco ball… the GCCR is our happy place. Thank you to Cindy Bray of the GCCR and Richmond Zine Fest co-organizer Mo Karnage for diligently following up to get this shindig confirmed.

Richmond Zine Fest 2012 will be Saturday Oct. 6th 11 am – 6 pm. Our event page is already up, so show us some love and tell us what zines you’ve been working on: Richmond Zine Fest 2012 on Facebook.

Expect an announcement with links to the registration pages for tablers and workshops this upcoming week.
