Speak For Yourself: Boston Zine Fair 2005
@ MassArt
March 19-20, 05

Speak For Yourself is a weekend-long event with the aim of bringing together zinesters, artists, and other producers of independent media. The conference includes two full days of tabling and trading, a spoken word show, and potluck meals. There are also numerous hands-on workshops and discussion panels which give us the opportunity to learn new skills to use in our own creative enterprises, as well as to explore the importance of independent media in a corporate-owned world. Speak For Yourself is free and open to the public. In previous years the Boston Zine Fair has drawn hundreds of both local and national publishers, and has been a great way to build community and just enjoy each other's company. Hope to see you there!

The dates for this year's Zine Fair are March 19th & 20th, with a spoken word show taking place the evening of the 18th. All events will be taking place at the Massachusetts College of Art. Check back in the next few weeks for more info regarding the location, as well as new workshops, etc.
