A Zine is self-published material that are often hand-made then photocopied. These days you see a full spectrum of high and lowbrow printing methods, mediums, and formats utilized in the presentation of Zines. You can be any kind of person with something to share and make a Zine - though Zine Fests attract many artists, photographers, writers, and visual storytellers… maybe you are already one of them. Zines can be many things: instructional, graphic, personal, a comic or story, a compilation of common or uncommon things. The endless possibilities are what make Zines fun, desirable, rare, and collectable.
Why in Eugene?
Zine Events are popping up the world over in cities large and small. Eugene is growing and changing, and as a member of its community we’d like to contribute, define and expand Eugene’s diverse cultural identity. This city has hosted a number of extremely talented artists (and still does) but in many cases we are loosing those unique voices to other places. By creating EUZINE we’d like to give local artists a sense of community, a space to be seen, and an opportunity to make money. EUZINE is also interested in broadening it’s network; creating an event that draws in talent from other states, possibly other countries… so we can join the fabulous Silk Road that culminates Art, Design and Storytelling… through Zine media.
A Zine Fest is a place to meet and share with other Artists, Zinesters and Fans of graphic works. The common format has individuals selling or trading their works at tables. Trading often happens at the end of the event, and is initiated on a one-on-one basis (you do not have to trade if you want to – BUT it is also really awesome). If you come with a buddy you can switch off at your table to walk around and enjoy the festivities. Zine Fests also hold events in conjunction with the tabling expo to add variety, entertainment, and education. We seek to add these elements and many more perks to our EUZINE Fest.
