The Zine and Independent Comic Symposium (ZICS) is a 3-day event to be held in Brisbane, Australia at The Edge on Friday 29th, Saturday 30th, & Sunday 31st August. The event aims to provide a forum for the talents involved in independent publishing within Brisbane and across the nation. ZICS is a not for profit community collective, all run by volunteers who want to put on an event different to the usual conventions. ZICS is about people’s passions and engaging with the community.
The weekend itself is going to be MASSIVE, with more tables, more workshops, and more panels than last year! Confirmed guests this year already include Tessa Fox, Sophie Benjamin, Maria Zarro, Jase Harper, Sticky Institute, Simon Gray (Format), Steve Stamatiadis (Krome Studios), Paul Mason, Phillip Dearest, Alex Campbell, Ben Constantine, Plastic Knife, Michael Fikaris (Silent Army), Bianca Valentino, and Canberra Zine Emporium
ZICS believes that being able to craft and publish your own work, without needing to rely on another person or company, is an incredibly important act that needs to be supported. We all need to create a space where people can draw inspiration, collaborate with their peers, develop important conversations, and connect to their community at large. So if you are into DIY, support independents, freedom to express yourself and zines....the pozzible link to support the ZICS cause on over there on the right. click it, learn more about ZICS!!!!
